A little over two weeks ago, Detroit Lakes resident Joshua Anderson, 20, told his parents that he had a headache.

"I was thinking it was a migraine," said Joshua's mother, Karen. "They run in the family."


Still, Josh had never experienced a migraine before, so they weren't sure.

"He'd never had any problems," said Josh's father, Rick.

"He's always been a very healthy boy," said Karen.
