    My husband bought me a fruit smoothie.somehow when sipping it iy got the certain place.What I think happened is as the ice hit the roof of my mouth,I started to get the regular headache-it then caused muscles to spasm and the pain was very intense.My husband said that my face turned bright red...........brain freeze and fibro-not a good combination.I had a headache for an hour after that!Linda

    Sounds like no fun! I get those in the summer. I cheat and always let my smoothies melt down before I drink them. One to many headaches in my memory banks I guess I never thought about it till now.

    I've never been a lover of cold sweets, like ice cream, smoothies, frozen yogurt, etc. I hate that ice cream headache thing!

    I take my chances because I love ice cream so much. Sigh. I haven't had an ice cream headache in a bit now, but think I'll lay off for a while; you gave me a little wake-up call.

    Hope you are feeling better now. Hope the smoothie was good enough to bear the headache. Course, I don't know how good it would have to be for you to be worth a headache.

    Hugs,
