When I drink cold things like take a big gulp or drink of cold water my head feels really weird. Like I just took a big drink of cold lemonade and I got a weird feeling in my head. It's kind of like when I drink a milkshake too fast too. Why does my head hurt when I do that? Should I see a doctor about it? It's only with cold drinks.

When something cold touches the roof of your mouth, the blood vessels quickly contract and swell which causes a nerve response and creates the headaches which last typically from 10 to 20 seconds. The easiest way to prevent this is to eat of drink cold things slowly! Also, if you push your thumb to the roof of your mouth it usually stops the headache.
