What is the best way to cure hiccups

Report as

My tried & true cure: bend at the waist and sip water from the outer rim of a glass. With practice it works! Apparently drinking in that position changes the diaphragm and hiccups are gone. Works every time. :)

Whenever I try that, I end up pouring water up my nose. But, it does work, because by the time I stop sneezing from the water in the nose, the hiccups are gone

This is no joke. Pull down your ear lobes until they go away.

Boo! Did it work? A good scare is very effective.

Breathe into a paper bag for about a half minute sometimes helps.

Drink a full glass of slightly cooler than room temperature water might help too.

You can drink some water, or hold your breath for ten seconds and then swallow without breathing. :o

After the first hiccup I hold my breath for 10 seconds or more. It works almost every time and I now rarely get more than one hiccup :) if this fails gulp down a glass of water as fast as you can with out choking.
