Why does my head hurt when I drink cold things?


Question Posted Monday September 13 2010, 7:04 am

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.

it is a brain freeze.. slow down when you drink and you should be fine.. when you drink especially cold things, it is important to slow down because your body needs time to handle it and when it comes in to much it affects you brain..

It's called a "brain freeze" and it's pretty common. It's like a brief headache after to eat or drink something cold too fast. 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.

Hope that helps :)
