    As I've had hiccups for a while now.

    Here are some highlights

    You may have noticed a pattern by now.

    At the end they give the following tip

    I wonder if they realize that's what half the methods are.

    This reminds me of this guy who was in the news a while back who had had hiccups for over a year. I'm sure he's tried some of the more crazy methods to try and get rid of them.

    more cures...
    chlorpromazine
    blister or burn the skin above the phrenic nerve on the neck and back
    tickle the pharynx with a hollow flexible tube through the nose
    hypnosis or acupuncture
    Sudden Fright
    Pulling on the tongue
    Breathing into a bag

    Just drinking water, if done soon enough, might wash down a chunk of food in the throat that's pressing against a nerve.


    Home remedies are usually based upon the idea that you have to disrupt the hiccup cycle

    Drinking water or Eating Sugar works if you do it before the 7th hiccup

    I just hold my breath for 30 seconds or so and they almost always go away.

    I just take a huge breath and hold it until I have to breathe.

    Why can't people just leave the hiccups to fade away on there own, on average they only last about 5 minutes for me.

    They're annoying, and sometimes they can hurt. My hiccups can get pretty painful. But yeah, I personally usually just leave them to go away on their own.

    Anyone else feel weird right after their hiccups are gone?

    Like they are missing something?
