How can I get rid of brain freeze migraines?

I seem to get them about once a month.


Answer by  olive8 (911)

Assuming that by brain freeze migraine you mean that horrible brief pain after eating something cold, then you may want to try eating slower, and holding the food longer in your mouth before you swallow to warm it a bit. If these brain freezes cause actual migraines then you should take the above steps, but see a doctor as well.

Migraines can be generated from a multiple of sources. First and foremost is blood pressure. Before buying any high dollar super fixes check blood pressure for a few days. Speak with your Dr about blood pressure meds then attempt to lower it as smuch as possible.

Cold hitting nerves in the mouth roof cause brain freeze headache by swelling the brain's blood vessels. Warm the mouth roof, drink warm water. Migraine are also caused by vascular dilation. Do not take aspirin, which causes vessels to dilate. Instead take anti-histamines which will shrink them.
