Bot Suffering From Migraines

Jonathan Papelbon tells the Globe's Jackie MacMullan that on September 14, the day he and Hideki Okajima blew a 7-2 lead to the Yankees, he was suffering from a migraine and had spent much of that day at a local hospital.
When they get really bad, even the slightest amount of noise or light is just brutal. You just want to curl up in a ball and die. ... The migraines are something I cope with and deal with. ... I get a few of these a year - about four or five a season. I'm learning how to make it easier to pitch through them. ... I probably shouldn't have pitched that night. I didn't feel right. I never even went back and looked at that game. I knew it was bad. I knew I blew it.
Back in May 2006, Bot talked about grinding his teeth at night, also.
