February 3rd, 2012

Superbowl 2012 Patriots vs. GiantsYou have planned and anticipated for weeks now to watch the biggest game of the year. The snacks are prepared, your friends are on the way, and you have a mind blowing migraine!

It’s too unbearable to imagine, right? Now imagine you are one of those football players actually in the game. It’s the highlight of all you have dreamed of your entire career and you have a MIGRAINE!

For those of you who suffer with migraines, you know how truly devastating the pain can be.

It is unimaginable having a migraine and at the same time, having 300 pound behemoths slamming your body to the ground. Yet the sports world is full of professional athletes who suffer with migraines.

Professional athletes play through so much pain from injuries yet a “migraine” is enough to take them out of the game for days.

Terrell Davis MVP running back for the Denver Broncos, missed part of Super Bowl XXXII due to a migraine. Other footballers who suffer with migraines are Cleveland Browns, Marques Pope, Shawn Nelson of the Buffalo Bills stated “I can play through injuries but with a migraine, they are unreal, I can’t move!” Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin collapsed at practice and was hospitalized for a migraine.

Outside of football, Scottie Pippin of the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan’s teammate, made headlines when his team lost an Eastern Conference game because a migraine forced him to not play.

Dwayne Wade of the Miami Heat is bothered by migraines so often that he tried wearing tinted lenses during games. (Special tinted lenses have been shown to help reduce the frequency of migraines in some people). Oddly enough, the NBA (in all of their medical wisdom) felt that his glasses weren’t necessary and banned him from wearing them.

Tennis player, Serena Williams is reported to suffer from menstrual migraines.

These are just some, of the many celebrities whose lives are disrupted by migraines. Now there is something that they and you, can do about it. No longer do you have to wonder and worry about when the next migraine attack will come.

For all of those who suffer with chronic migraines, “prevention is far superior to living on pain pills”. Preventing the pain from happening in the first place, is the most logical goal.
