If you mean 'ice-cream headache', then no.
That pain is either caused by stimulation of
the trigeminal nerve in the roof of your
mouth or by cold air in your sinuses
resulting in an abrupt contraction of the
blood vessels in your forehead (similar to the way migraines are caused).

Causes. It's not just ice cream; any cold stimulus can cause the nerve pain that results in the sensation of a brain freeze. Brain freeze is caused by: Cooling of the capillaries of the sinuses by a cold stimulus, which results in vasoconstriction (a narrowing of the blood vessels

Brain freeze is practically a rite of summer. It happens when you eat ice cream or gulp something ice cold too quickly. The scientific term is sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia, but that's a mouthful. Brain freeze is your body's way of putting on the brakes, telling you to slow down and take it easy.
Brain freeze is caused by:

Cooling of the capillaries of the sinuses by a cold stimulus, which results in vasoconstriction (a narrowing of the blood vessels).

A quick rewarming by a warm stimulus such as the air, which results in vasodilation (a widening of the blood vessels).
