A hiccup, medically known as SDF (synchronous diaphragmatic flutter) or singultus, is a sudden, involuntary contraction of the diaphragm. This occurs at the same time as a contraction of the voice box (larynx) and total closure of the glottis, effectively blocking air intake. The glottis is the middle part of the larynx, where the vocal cords are located. Different ways of getting rid of hiccups. 1- Hold your breath for a short time, breath out, then do it again three or four times - do this every 20 minutes. 2- Take three fingers and apply pressure on top of your diaphragm. 3- Gargle with cold water. 4- Get some granulated sugar and swallow it. 5- With long deep breaths; breathe into a paper bag. 6- Sit down and hug your knees as close to your chest as you can then lean forward so that you gently compress your chest. Hope this helps!
You'll need some-one to assist you with this one (kids are always good for this one!). Get them to totally plug your ears with their fingers (it'll sound like it does when you're under water), you have to pinch your nose, AND drink a glass of water without stopping for a breath. Yep, all 3 things at the same time!! At the point when you feel like you are about to 'drown' (no air), you hiccups will have ceased. Honestly it works every time, and even the kids can do it for their friends if they have hiccups (I've had 4yr olds do this successfully)
One Great Method !_________Acupuncture Point from China : The acupoint called "???" Kindly copy the Chinese Words to google then find the acupoint in your own hand! When you hiccups agian you press the acupoint several minutes ! It will works ! I am Wison ,China !
Try this: fill a cup with water, grip the far edge of the cup with your teeth, lean over a bathtub (in case water spills) and try and drink it. The concentration will hopefully make your hiccups stop. Or, take a short breath, hold it as long as you can, then take another short breath, hold that as long as you can, until you can't take any more small breaths. Hold it as long as you can and slowly let it out.
Usually if you convince yourself that a certain thing will work, it will. In high school, a friend told me to hold my breath and picture a white unicorn running through a field and as crazy as it sounds, I must've convinced myself of it, because it still works for me
