ICE CREAM OWWW!
It's the scientific name for "brain freeze". It happens when you eat something very cold very quickly. You can try pressing your tongue to the roof of your mouth to warm it, but it's best to eat things like ice cream slowly to avoid the discomfort which weirdly, you feel in your forehead.
That's because when the affected blood vessels signal the largest cranial nerve, your brain interprets the pain as a headache. The trigeminal nerve is also the culprit behind many head, neck, and face aches that are actually generated by the trigeminal jaw joint. It is no wonder that some suffers of Temporomandibular Joint Disease (TMD), a dysfunction of the jaw, don't think to ask their dentist.
