I actually having been having sizable Raynauds problems with my nose. It has spread to my cheeks and inside my mouth.
But yesterday I thought I hit an all time ridiculous level- I had a "brain freeze", like when you drink a really cold drink too fast and you get a pain near your eyes, that lasted most of yesterday and today. It was painful although I sort of got used to it after awhile.

So I have been thinking about how to warm it up. On the inside. If cold drinks give a freeze, maybe warm would relieve it.

I never have liked tea or coffee. Usually the only warm drink I've had is hot chocolate which I have stopped due to caffeine.
I did buy some fruit flavored teas to give a try and thought I would start drinking broth to help.

Any other suggestions?

Just one suggestion ran through my head. Hot apple cider?

Warm cider is delicious and wonderfully soothing.

Did anything work? Hope it is better now.

When I saw the title to your post, I assumed it was memory related as my brain freezes up all the time! :wacko: :blink:
