Ice Cream Headaches

Brain freezes aren’t fun. You’re sipping on a Slurpee or drinking a milkshake and bam! Stabbing headache. Cold stimulus headaches occur when you expose your unprotected head to cold temperatures.

The good news is most ice cream headaches go away in a minute or so.


If you’re experiencing an ice headache,

  • First, you’ll feel a sharp, stabbing pain in your forehead
  • Secondly, the pain peaks about 20 to 60 seconds after it begins
  • Lastly, the pain rarely lasts longer than five minutes

Prevention on National Ice Cream Day
