What is Ice-cream Head Ache?

Have you heard of ice-cream headache ?

After eating or drinking a cold substance such as an ice cream , milk shake, you might sense a strange pain in your head, even in your eyes.

That’s nothing but ice-cream head ache or brain freeze.

When a cool substance comes in contact with the back part of the palate, the blood vessels contract, resulting in an acute pain in the mid frontal part of the brain.

Many of us experience this sort of pain. Have you?
