    I had hiccups for quite awhile a minute ago and I decided to make a topic about it.
    Explain how you get rid of your hiccups!

    Mine is something that my sister told me to do long time ago. She told me to put a napkin over a cup of water and drink though the napkin. It worked back then, but now it doesn't always work.

    Step 2: Put wet napkin on your forehead.

    I think what works is to get shocked or something. But please don't try sticking a fork into an outlet.​

    Hold your breath and swallow air (make your throat do that swallowing motion)

    Is it true if you try to force a fart out you can break a blood vessel?

    Never heard of getting shocked, maybe I'll try that [​IMG]

    someone told me to inhale and then during exhaling say the german word for bread (brot) several times quick. its supposed to soothe your phrenic, thus stop your hiccup. worked when i was littler, and i rarely have a chance to try again because my last hiccup was years ago.

    Swallow at least 9 times between hiccups. Do it with or without water.

    Guaranteed to work.

    I don't think I can swallow that fast. I've been swallowing every time I have hiccups, and I can't do it that fast. [​IMG]

    Water sometimes works for me. Basically you drink alot at once or leave the water sitting at the back of your mouth. The force of the water holds back the phrenic muscle used for hipcupping although if there is an inbalance in forces it can cause you to cough the up the water and hipcup at the same time as shown in the equation e=mc².

    What always works for me is I get hipcups i try to get rid of them but they remain and then I go do something else and somehow forget and then an hour later are like woh my hip cups are gone. [​IMG]

    Yeah I've heard getting your mind off of your hiccups makes it go away and thats probably why they didn't go away. I drink a lot at once.

    Just holding my breath never works.

    Colobos's comment seems the easiest to remember, will try that out next time.

    Don't get hiccups.

    Try drinking water from the other side of the glass? Don't know how though...

    Just get something to drink and take lots and lots of small sips. The key is doing lots of swallows. So don't chug the drink.
