    1) Thoughts out to Harvin..hope he can get it under control. That sucks



    And way down the totem pole

    2) Sucks for me that I drafted him in my first fantasy league.

    He is a great player and seems like he just wants to play so this really sucks for him.

    Unfortunate. I feel for this guy.
    I worked with a woman once who had these migrains, and let me tell you,
    they are no joke. When she had an attack, she just packed it in and went home for a day or 2.

    Is it me, or am I the only one who noticed that they are now calling him "Migraine".

    I kid, I kid.

    Prayers go out the young guy. He can't catch a break here lately. Hopefully he can get those things under control and get to feeling better.

    Me too! Sucks even more for me because he was my best WR. That just shows how bad my WR corps is.

    Seriously though, I never knew migraines were that intense. I too, hope he can get through this.

    Friggin luv me some TD. Smart, strong, had fun playing the game and ran with conviction.

    There are all sorts of problems going on with this team right now that are way beyond just Favre and that circus.

    Harvin's hardly been in camp because of his problems. Rice has hardly been practicing and supposedly has some hip problems. I think the Vikings might implode this year potentially. But then again, they could still have similar success like last season, but there seems to be a lot more problems this year and this team keeps getting older.

    Migraines are horrific. I'm very sorry for him. Hope he gets well and gets a handle on this.

    My wife gets migraines and they can be debilitating. Hope he can get it under control and play again.

    Hope he's feeling better today. Wonder if this will have a long term effect on his pro career?

    I get migraines occasionally. They are horrific. I used to get them monthly back in high school, but now only get them very sporadically a couple times a year. It is brutal.

    Prayers for it only being migraine related. A severe hypertensive episode with bleed into the brain can mimic this picture.............just ask Joe Texan.

    There are also forms of migraines with similar symptoms as Percy's associated with ischemic (lack oxygen to the brain) stroke, as well as neurologic hemiplegic (paralysis of one side of the body) forms (usually lasting a couple minutes to hours).

    I do too Gary. It's horrible that he suffers and one can only hope he's able to play at his best.

    Migraines are one of those things that are impossible to empathize with unless you've had one. Ive never had a migraine, so the thought of collapsing from a horrible headache is very foreign to me.

    Ive worked in the neurology clinic enough times to hear the stories, but its so just so hard to visualize. I hope he improves!

    The worst part of migraines for me, and Doc maybe you can explain to me what this is, but I get these waves in my eyes about 30 minutes before I get the pounding headache. It makes it very very difficult to see or do anything. Simply awful.
