Default Hicups

I have a bad case of the hicups and they will not go away. I have tried holding my breath, eating a spoon of sugar, and someone even tried to scare me. But nope, still have them and it has been 30 minutes or more. What else can I try?

I can get rid of hiccups in 10 seconds but not possible to explain over the internet how it's done.


And, not that you mentioned the medical profession but...doctor's that can't work out how to get rid of hiccups, IMO, are idiots, which is probably most of them, since it's pretty basic physiology.

Basic physiology: hicups, by definition, are caused by a twitch in the diaphragm...omit the twitch in the diaphragm and hey presto, hiccups gone. I wish I could explain over the internet...but consider slowing the movement of the diaphragm...holding it "taut" whilst slowly expelling air which permits it to move extremely slowly and under some pressure, since you're resisting the movement of the diaphragm as you ever so slowly expel air; take a deep breath, then start the very slow process, hiccups should be gone by the end.

That help?


Gets rid of hccups in double quick time. I read up on hiccups, realised it was basically a twitch and went about eliminating the twitch

That only alters the ratio of O2 to CO2 and whilst helpful for asthmatics and such, it won't do a thing for hiccups.
