Anecdotal evidence theater VI

On this episode of anecdotal evidence theater, there's an editorial in BMJ about ice cream headache / brainfreeze, the headache caused by eating cold foods too quickly.

The article claims only one third of people feel brainfreeze, but I've had a lot of conversations about it, and nobody has ever jumped in and said "That never happens to me!" So:

Poll #502319 brainfreeze

What's the proper term?

Ice cream headache
25(39.7%)
Brainfreeze
36(57.1%)
Something else (explain in comments, please)
2(3.2%)

Have you ever had one?

Yes
54(87.1%)
No
8(12.9%)
