Q: Holy cow! I can't believe ice cream is a legitimate treatment for headaches.[/b]

I just had three migraines right in a row and didn't know how I was going to take care of my 3-month-old baby all day if the cycle kept going. I ate an ice-cream bar, and my migraine was gone almost instantly. I figured it was coincidental, but I'm glad to see from your website that I'm not nuts!

A: Ever since one reader reported migraine relief from eating chocolate peanut-butter ice cream, we have heard from many others that ice cream can help stop these horrible headaches. It is possible that the "brain freeze" from quickly eating something very cold may interrupt the migraine process.

So far as we know, this has not been studied scientifically. On the other hand, it is inexpensive and low-risk.

Oh how strange! I am weird in that I actually hate ice cream and anything cold. When my head is bad I hate it even more. But maybe it could actually help.

Come on ice cream eaters - I'm looking forward to hearing your results. Or are you too busy scoffing? Very Happy

Slightly off topic, but it's funny how you have to throw out the rule book on food, isn't it? I find my stomach is so much better since I started finishing every meal with a fruit pastille. The problem I get is that my stomach is constantly slowing down due to the migraines, and high carbohydrates make it empty. It really does work, but probably isn't great for the toothies!
