Special Headaches

Certain stimuli may cause brief headaches.  They include:

  •  โ€œIce-Cream Headacheโ€ (โ€œbrain freezeโ€), when enough cold hits the roof of the mouth fast enough.
  • โ€œCough Headacheโ€ occurs after coughing.
  • โ€œSexual Intercourse Headacheโ€ occurs during or right after sex; it can be emotionally traumatic.
  • โ€œChinese Restaurant Headacheโ€ from eating products with monosodium glutamate.
  • โ€œHot-Dog Headacheโ€ from foods with nitrites.

ย These headaches should only be diagnosed after numerous occurrences have set a pattern, not with the first episode.ย  There are many other uncommon types of headache that may respond to one treatment or another; neurologists who are headache specialists can help sort these out. Because of the intense straining, a Subarachnoid Hemorrhage from a brain aneurysm leak can also occur during sex.
