How To: Stop & get rid of hiccups

Stop & get rid of hiccups

HealthTalk.com's Dr. Zimney answers the question: How do I get rid of hiccups? The hiccup is a pretty mysterious thing. The two methods of stopping hiccups are to increase CO2 levels or fiddle with your throat. Hold your breath, drink a glass of cold water, swallow dry sugar or breathe out of a bag. If it lasts for multiple days go to the doctor.

pull hard on your tongue?? wise up

Last time I had hiccups was more than a decade ago, and today I got my surprise hiccup after drinking cola. I tried your suggestion of putting a tsp of dry sugar at the back of my tongue and swallowed quickly. I choked a bit but it worked instantly! Thank you so much for your advise!
