Something similar happens in a "back freeze." When cold food or drink reaches the bottom of your throat, it causes a contraction in your subclavian artery. On the right side of your throat, this artery extends just a little above your clavicle, your collarbone. Cold substances at the base of your throat can cause the subclavian artery to shrink near your spine with a similar effect. However, because there is less blood flow in your subclavian artery that there is in your carotid arteries, it takes longer to get over your "back freeze."

Sounds crazy but I thought I was having a heart attack the first time I had this happen to me! Doesn’t happen with ice cream, just frozen drinks. I quit drinking them! Pain not worth it! I was diagnosed years ago with a narrow esophagus that I periodically get “stretched” due to pain I get in my chest when I eat chicken, steak or bread. I assume that the frozen drinks go down so slowly that it makes my back muscles near esophagus spasm.

Get your gallbladder checked. Gallbladder issues can cause back pain due to nerve pathways. If eating or drinking something cold or even not cold causes back pain, then that is easily gallbladder related

Hey y'all, this is why we get a back freeze. It's more painful than a brain freeze and lasts longer.
