How to prevent icecream headaches

by
I just tried this out curiosity...never done it before, but it seems to have worked. I read once that icecream headaches were due to a nerve in your throat getting chilled too fast. So I was drinking some cold milk, my first instinct was to gulp it down. But I KNEW I was gonna get a headache from it, so I pushed it right on the roof of my mouth in the back, letting it get nice and cold then moved it a lil further back, paused then gulped it down. No headache. Tried gulping the rest down quickly, no headache. Wooo!

*really goes to sleep now*

cos the nerve gets "accustomed" to the tmperature slowly and takin its time, so thats whhy when swallowed, you have no headache, this is such a cunning discover! :3 my compliments! XD


and unless im wrong,the "scientifical" name for that nerve is " Trigeminal Nerve" better knewn as "V cranial nerve" :3

Just thinking about them "Brain freeze" hurts even now. I do get them alot, glad they only last maybe 30 seconds. Mine seen like if it touches the roof of my mouth to cause that. All I know its instant pain

Thank god..a person who actually gets these too! Yes!! It really sucks!! Try gradually building up the cold maybe? It's usually in the back of my throat and kind of in the roof of my mouth too.

On the tv show "the doctors" they says the cold triggers your body to send a rush of blood into your head as the body thinks your head is cold lol, all I know is I wouldn't want to have them last any longer then they do now,,Ouchy
