    insanmonster ,nope is more like lack of blood flowing on our brain, when you eat a large ammount of cold things whe have a thermic shock on our troath, our body respond diverting lot of our blood near the area to try to warm the zone, some of this blood come from our brain that is not so far from our troath and so can happen that we can faint.

    It`s actually when the brain is flooded with blood, caused by dilation of the anterior cerebral artery. Of course this simply translates into a bad headache.

    ACTUALLY dun dun dun.. seriously people we have the internet.
    "When something cold touches the roof of your mouth (your palate), the sudden temperature change of the tissue stimulates nerves to cause rapid dilation and swelling of blood vessels. This is an attempt to direct blood to the area and warm it back up. The dilation of the blood vessels triggers pain receptors, which release pain-causing prostaglandins, increase sensitivity to further pain, and produce inflammation while sending signals through the trigeminal nerve to alert the brain to the problem. Because the trigeminal nerve also senses facial pain, the brain interprets the pain signal as coming from the forehead."
