The answer is Yes!!!

I have used a ice pack behind my head for year’s and that really work’s well to lessen my migraine pain.

I read the other day that if you give yourself a brain freeze like drinking a cold drink or eating ice cream too fast it will make your migraine go away or lessen the pain.

So last night when I got a migraine I thought I would try it out to see if it would work, and I couldn’t believe it, it actually worked. It didn’t make my migraine completely go away, but it made the pain in my eye’s go away and I went from a pain level 8 to pain level 4.

Since migraine’s are triggered by a disruption in blood flow, and your brain get’s inflamed creating a brain freeze disrupt’s this and numb’s and calm’s the pain receptor’s.

Just like putting an ice pack on the back of my head work’s. Creating a brain freeze work’s too. It may not work for everyone, as everyone is different. I’m so excited this worked for me, and hope it continue’s to work. 

If you have any concern’s, contact your neurologist or primary doctor. I see my neurologist at the end of the month and will be asking him about this, and I will update on what he say’s about this.

Any question’s please let me know, feel free to comment or message me.
