How do YOU get rid of the hiccups?

I have the WORST case of the hiccups, they are VIOLENT, LOL! I have tried everything I know, except the one trick that always worked for me from my bar days (shot of lime juice!). However, I have no lime juice and Im going to lose my damn mind.

What is your go-to, tried and true, hiccup fix?

put a spoon in a tall glass of water (curved end sticking out). While drinking the water, put the spoon on your nose and keep it there. It works. Dont know why but it does. Every. single. time.Chat Icon

Spoonful of peanut butter. DH had the hiccups for hours and tried everything else. This was the thing that finally worked!

I just force myself to swallow each time I have to hiccup. I've found you can't swallow and hiccup at the same time. Always works. I'm assuming this is why the different variations of drinking water work.

Re: How do YOU get rid of the hiccups?

Put a straw in a glass of water, hold your nose and your ears and drink until you can't anymore. It looks a little strange but it works every time!

Re: How do YOU get rid of the hiccups?

all of these seem to require water or some other resource...if you have nothing available, this should work:

suck in as much air as you can (take multiple breaths until you literally can't take in any more air) and then hold it for 15 seconds. works every time.

This is my DH favorite hiccup cure too! We were in Disney years ago with my brother and SIL. Standing in line and I couldn't stop hiccupping and suddenly DH yells "Knock it off!!!" really loud to startle me. My brother thought it was hysterical and the people on line with us were laughing. I'm not actually sure it cured them though.Chat Icon

I tend to have fairly good results with the drinking from the opposite side of the glass.

I am a singer and have taught quite a few people how to stop hiccups.

So, first. Hold your breath and wait for a hiccup to come. FEEL in your body where the hiccup is. THAT is your diaphragm. Once you know where your diaphragm is you can stop the hiccups. I can feel my "D" right above my chest bone. So when I get Hiccups I hold my breath then I PUSH the air down against my D. It might take a few hiccups to "find" it, but I can stop my hiccup almost immediately.

Hold your breath. Find your D. Once you "feel" it you can push your breath against it to stop the spasm.

lol sorry i didn't see your question.

you have to be standing. you hold a glass of water in front of you and you bend at the waist to get your mouth on the side of the glass opposite you. and then you drink. it's like drinking "upside down."

it forces you to hold your breath.

i would not be surprised if there are a million youtube videos of it out there.

works EVERY TIME.

Take a deep breath of air and then make little swallows as long as you can on that breath of air. Repeat if necessary.
