Dr. G. Monreal (Position: Staff, Cardiothoracic Surgery , The Ohio State University), I read over an answer you gave in February, 2001, that Dr. Robert Smith (founder of the Cincinnati Headache Center) was unable to reproduce an ice cream headache in himself, even applying crushed ice to his palate. He thought it was something that only happened in warm weather. Now I'm curious if he tried this with different subjects or only himself? I've found that no matter the weather or season, I always get ice cream headaches with cold liquids or food. Even a drink from the fridge, such as juice or milk, hurts. I tend to microwave my drinks for a few seconds. Surely other people react to cold fluids in winter??
