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.

I’m 33 years old and have been suffering from Chronic Migraines for 7 years. I have had migraines all my life, the first one was when I was in 4th grade, and as I got older they got worse. My migraines turned into chronic migraines 7 years ago and have become so debilitating that I can no longer work or have much of a social life. Bright lights and fluorescent lights are a major trigger, so I have to wear dark sunglasses most of the time. Because of that, I can no longer work, go shopping or be outside for a long time. Over the last 7 years I’ve learned how to live with this disease. Many people don’t understand the pain & sickness because Chronic Migraines are a silent disease. I get migraines 3-4 times a day, I loose my vision, and get very nauseous and confused. The only thing I can do when this happens is take my medications and sleep. I’ve been trying to get disability for 7 years now & had no luck. The problem with this illness is because you can’t see it like a broken arm or leg etc. Everyone thinks it’s not a big deal. Unless you have experienced this, many will never understand. To be honest, I wouldn’t want them to. This disease is a nightmare and wouldn’t want anyone else to go through this. I have suffered so long and am still suffering, that I have depression now. After 7 years I have learned a lot of information and tricks, and that’s what I want to share. My goal is to help others get through this day by day, because I understand what your going through. I understand the excruciating pain, the times where you don’t want to move your head because it feels like a cement block. I understand all the times people have passed you off because they think your exaggerating or being lazy. I understand all those times the doctors have just given up on you. I have had countless tears over the last 7 years. I have a great family and I try and get by with what I have and that’s what’s important. If I could I would start a charity or organization for people with Chronic Migraines so we wouldn’t have to rely on the government when we simply cannot work because the moment we start a job within 10 min we would have a migraine. I sympathize with all of you. I have been through it all. I’ve tried many treatments and medications and tried many natural ways to help. I’ve learned a lot over the last 7 years and I want to share and help others in need as much as I can. I want to share what has worked and what hasn’t, Tricks that make the headaches and migraines get better, and information on migraines and the different types of migraines. My mission is I want to help others that suffer like I do. If I help 1 person that will be enough for me. God Bless
