Cardale Jones taken to the hospital

Submitted by The Blue in Ohio on September 2nd, 2015 at 10:31 PM

Seeing multiple people on facebook and twitter showing tweets from Devonte Jones saying his brother Cardale Jones was taken to the hospital with a severe migraine and inability to move. Not sure how to embed and could not find any other info on it doing a few quick searches.

Mod edit: Not OT. Here are a couple 11W tweets. JGB.

Confirmed by a couple of sources: Cardale Jones was taken to a hospital for bad migraine. Is resting and should be good.

All are potentially serious but he'll probably be fine long term and for the season.

Heat Stroke(F'ing awful had it earlier in the summer).

Concussion(as long as not a string of them scary but should be fine).

Exertion headache(few of my friends get them when competing, often tight neck muscles etc)

I know I've had a migraine or two that make it almost unbearble to move, and the first one sure scared me shitless.  I'm hoping that is the case here and nothing more serious.

of headaches in general; usually 1-2/week of your garden variety, then can usually count on a migraine once every 6 weeks or so. I've had migraines knock me on my ass, but never like that. I'd be nauseated and it hurt like hell to move, but it's not like I couldn't. Surely hope it's nothing too serious. Not just for his career but he's a dad too...

"Migraine" is often a term that people use to describe any severe headache, rather than specifically one that is caused by changes in the blood vessels in the brain/head.  True migraines RARELY can cause loss of movement to specific areas of the body, loss of eyesight, etc.  Often, people with severe headaches don't WANT to move because it makes their pain worse.

If he really couldn't move, evaluation for a stroke is necessary.  With the lack of information we have at this point, there is no way to know how serious this is.

Wish him well but FUCK OHIO STATE.

Depends, he might suffer from migraines with aura and could get hemiplegic migraines. The symptoms are more or less spot on for a hemiplegic. It's not that common from what I understand, but saying "true migraines" rarely cause these type of issues feels incorrect from what I've read.

As someone that has suffered from migraines since the age of 12, I hope it passes soon.  It's something I wouldn't wish on anybody.  There are different types but the only way I can explain it is after having your vision go blurry or even completely white, you become so sensitive to light that you have to retreat to a dark room, cool room and wait to throw up as your eyes hurt so bad that it feels like someone is trying to remove them with a spoon


Imagine trying to explain that to a couple of parents that had zero history of migraines and no clue what was going on.

Except is had them since I could remember and my mother's side had them so at least she understood. When I moved to my Dad's he truly thought I was making it up. I'd have to chop wood with a migraine, practice football/wrestling, etc. One day I puked about 10x and he finally realized something was up. I still get them and nothing helps. I wouldn't wish them on anyone.

but it's not a contest as 1-2 a year is still horror! That's almost scarier s you never know when it's coming. I at least know that about once a week I'll be out of commission. As for the pain, for some reason painkillers (one of the last options given for relief) only made them worse. Crazy, huh? I'd tried MaxAlt (that was it's name, iirc) a while back and it kinda helped but I can't get a doctor to understand that. Each one always has their "fix" prescription that doesn't work at all. Good luck to you, too! They suck and make life so worse. PS: Did you ever have a period of life where they went away? Age 15-20 they just went away.....21 they came back with a vengeance. Worse each year since. We've looked at everything so they think it was hormonal.
