What causes certain people to get stomach pain when they drink something very cold?

In: Biology

The nerves in your stomach don’t differentiate between different types of sensations the way your skin does. They can’t tell the difference between pain, cold, pressure, heat, etc. All they know how to do is say, “Something’s wrong!” So when you drink something cold, they send that message to the brain, which interprets it as pain because that’s the most likely way to get you to stop whatever you’re doing and try to fix it before it permanently damages your stomach.
