What causes head pain after drinking cold water?

  • ICE CREAM "HEADACHE" THERE ARE MANY nerves running from your spine, up the back of your neck at the base of your skull. When something really cold is swallowed, it passes by these nerves and causes a short-term ache at the base of the skull, which feels like a headache. When some people eat ice cream quickly, they will experience this short-term "headache", many times called an "ice cream headache". To my knowledge, this is not harmful. <<<ADR>>>
