    Did I scream!? The painful frosty treat(ment)

    "Did someone scream?"

    --- The Ghost Host, referring to the guest with the brain freeze.

    Speaking of I Scream, er... Ice Cream rather, I was just wondering how many mice chatters got brain freezes. They are those horrible pounding headaches that occur when you eat something cold like ice cream, and the cold substance touches the roof of your mouth. They work sorta like a heart attack, except less deadly. I say this b/c like a heart attack, you usually feel the pain somewhere else (Heart Attack = arm, Brain Freeze = head), when the real problem is actually occuring somewhere completely different ( Heart Attack = Heat... er heart rather (ice cream is cold!) (duh), Brain Freeze = mouth)

    With that and sensitive teeth, coldn treats are really unbearable to me...


    BTW,
    What do Ice Cream and Heart Attacks have in common? (other than the above)

    They are connected by the Haunted Mansion. No, not b/c of my little joke on the top of the page, but because DL sold the "I Scream Sundae" near the time of the Haunted Mansion's opening and the fact that the lady had the heart attack and they changed the entire mansion, b/c it was so scary... Oh wait! That's not true! Anywho, carry on with the brain freeze discussion if you so choose...

    Pleasent Screams!

    This is kind of a "What Would Tui Say" moment. Can you just imagine his response to this?
    I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.
    That explains the trouble that I'm always in...

    I found a sure fire cure for brain freeze. During an attack, rub the roof of your mouth with your tongue and you will find there is an area that is noticably colder than the rest of your mouth. Rub your tongue on that spot and the brain freeze will disappear almost instantly!

    That's why I do all my randomly eccentric and wierd postings in his absence. Hey, I write for a living, I am entitled to let my wierd thoughts flow everywhere but in the novels... Oh wait... That's where they belong!

    Re: Did I scream!? The painful frosty treat(ment)

    I've experienced it before. I try to be more careful when eating something I know has the potential for causing it. I've also drank something really cold (like a slurpee) fast enough to experience what dsnylndmom has, the pain in the chest and throat.

    When I get brain freeze, I just hit my forehead with the palm of my head. Or I just take my mind away from the pain in my head by hitting my leg, it works wonders!
