Dr. Juliana VanderPluym of Mayo Clinic discusses ice pick headache, its relationship with migraine, its causes, symptoms and treatments.
In terms of the phrases that people often use to describe their headaches, “stabbing” is probably near the top of the list. For people who try searching the internet for answers, this might lead to the discovery—and use—of the term “ice pick headache.”
But according to Dr. Juliana VanderPluym of Mayo Clinic, ice pick headache is not just a simple way to describe it—it’s a type of headache all its own.
“I would say more often than not, people come across the term ‘ice pick’ accidentally,” Dr. VanderPluym says. “They might not have gone and searched ‘Dr. Google’ to find out what they have, but just because of what the headache feels like, they end up accidentally diagnosing it themselves.”
Ice pick headache is not to be confused with other kinds of headache—including migraine. Dr. VanderPluym walks us through how this disease is diagnosed and treated.
