N. Ipsilateral, temporal, orbital and or bilateral pain resulting from rapid cooling of the spheno-palantine ganglion (roof of mouth), often a result of ice-cream or slurpees, although any cold substance can trigger such a response. The pain is a result of dialated blood vessels in the brain brought on by spasms of the nerve endings and typically peaks in about 20 seconds from the point of ingestion.
After rapidly ingesting the Slurpee, Bob winced in pain as if he were having a migraine.

Brain Freeze is getting a suddenly high-pitched ache in the upper part of the throat (Nearly in the head) because of consumming too quickly a cold drink or a cold food. The pain stays for about 30 seconds, but it's intense cold makes you feel like your brain is going into hypothermia and die.

Therefore, there is no need for Aspirin or calling 911 as it will go away soon.
