  • The only thing that has ever worked for me is to fill my mouth with water and then sit down and bend over as far between my knees as possible and then slowly swallow the water.

    It usually only takes two or three mouthfuls before the hiccups are gone.

  • hold your breath for 30 seconds, hold it count to 30 and they should be gone, but if you hiccup in the with in those 30 seconds start over, or put your finger right behind your earlobe and press gently but firmly. works for me too..
