Crap... I have the hiccups. They are darn loud too! No matter what I have tried, I can not rid myself of them. It's 2:30am.... I need to find a way to sleep.

i'm sure you've gotten rid of them by now, but my cure for hiccups is:<br><br>
plug your nose with one hand, take a really big deep breath, hold it, and drink water until you can't hold your breath any more. you can feel the pressure building up in your ears and everything while you're swallowing, i guess maybe that's what helps. i dunno, works for me every time though

argg ... I remember having them like 5 times in one day. I think the total time with them was like 5 hours of hiccuping . The next day I had these muscles in my upper chest that were quite sore from the involuntary usage (probably little muscles which normally never get used much.<br><br><br><br>
Hiccups are proof that the Universe has an evil sense of humour <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
There is a guiness record of someone having them for like 40 years or so.

My personal hiccup remedy is to take 15 small sips of water without pausing for breath in between.<br><br><br><br>
Usually, it works.

I try to breath regular and focus on relaxing my chest/neck muscles.<br><br><br><br>
That usually works.

I have a cure that has worked every single time except for one for me, but it is too hard to explain because I hold my breath a certain way, at a certain point, with certain muscles, and can't describe it. But I know other good ways, such as drinking cranberry juice, that is if you don't usually drink it, or you can drink water or something else upside down. I don't mean stand upside down and drink it, just bend over and drink from the opposite side of the glass that you usualy would. This works every time for my mom, and if I chose this method instead of holding my breath it always works for me.

If I get hiccups once, I have them all day. I work on phones a couple of nights a week and I had the hiccups once, and I have to say that doing some loud hiccup in the middle of a word, well, kind of breaks the mood! I get rid of them by holding my breath and pinching my ear lobes right where they touch my face for as long as I can. It works. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I don't like to..... I have to, because you are at fault.<br><br><br><br>
And what is with saying it makes you sad, followed by a smiley face?

My mom used to tell me whenever I had the hiccups to stand on my head and sing 'Its a Small World' backwards. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> hehe

is that just the order of the words backwards or the actual words backwards? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I was sad... and I was happy because I knew you'd feel bad for making me sad.
