Q. I know when my burning headaches go all day it’s because the weather has gone from too hot to too cold at the snap of my fingers. Or rain is on the way within the next day or two. But after popping pain pills all day with no relief, why does eating spoonfuls of chocolate peanut butter ice cream take the pain right away?

Some people suggest that inducing brain freeze early, before a headache sets in too strongly, the better it works. Of course we can’t make any guarantees about how well this remedy will work for any given individual. Compared to most prescription and OTC headache medicine, ice cream, ice water, Slushies® or Frappucinos® seem to have few side effects and are fairly inexpensive…

Happy National Fried Chicken Day! Did you know that chicken is a successful treatment for chronic pain? And tomorrow is National Strawberry Sundae Day.

And now you have a good excuse to eat fried chicken and ice cream. You’re welcome.

  1. Ohh thank you! I now have an excuse to go to Dairy Queen or Baskin Robbins! I try not to eat ice cream around my son that often because he’s lactose intolerant. He likes slurpies and snow cones. The headaches from the accident are still around! They come and go.

    • Give the headaches a couple more months before you worry about them. But try some ice cold water instead of ice cream, throughout the day, and maybe it will work as a preventative measure. Then, after your son goes to sleep, break out the ice cream and Hershey’s syrup. 🙂

      • Have you had a concussion before? I’ve gone to the doctor but they don’t do anything but give me crap that doesn’t work. Only a muscle relaxer helps but I can only take it at night. They gave me Tylenol 3 and it makes my stomach hurt, even if I eat before. I think I want ice cream for breakfast! Lol.

        • Yes, I’ve had a concussion before, but it was a very long time ago. Seems like you just need to give your brain some more time to settle down. Also, tense neck muscles can contribute to headaches, so stretch your neck throughout the day and get your significant other to give you a neck massage (while you’re eating ice cream). 🙂

          I love me some muscle relaxers, but it’s easy to make them a habit, so be careful. An upset stomach is a common side effect of opioids. I didn’t have that problem, but I usually didn’t eat with each dose. Maybe try something easy to counteract the nausea, like sucking on a peppermint.

        • Yum a massage and ice cream! You can’t go wrong with that! I try not to take the muscle relaxers too much because I feel groggy the next morning. Hmm, good idea on the peppermint. Thanks Dr. Johnna! 🙂 Your medical advice beats going to a stupid professional who doesn’t care and charges me hundreds of dollars! Well my medical bills will eventually be paid. My lawyer is really on top of things.

  2. Oh no! I suffered debilitating migraine headaches for almost 28 years. I never found anything that helped. Chicken and ice cream? LOL
    I don’t eat chicken and I don’t like ice cream. Guess it’s a good thing I don’t have them anymore.
    I also never get brain freeze due to extra bone on my soft pallet that protects those nerve endings that cause it. LOL
