    Hiccups!

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by SeaBreeze, May 18, 2007.

    As I sit here patiently waiting out the end of my hiccupping, I was wondering what are all your remidies for getting rid of hiccups??? And what about embaressing stories of your hiccups?

    I know that It was embaressing to work at a fast food joint and work the drive-thu while having hiccups!

    Suck on a sppon. ^^

    Or drink water from the other side of the glass.

    Hold your breath.

    Shout Pineapple really loudly.

    Well I recently had the hiccups for 3 days, I usually get them for around that length of time, but the worst would have to be when I was with a really sweet guy at the begining of the year and I was making my daughter a bottle to try and get her back to sleep and I had the hiccups and I was jumping everytime and when i turned around he scared me to get rid of the hiccups and ended up with baby formula all over him and I never got rid of the hiccups either....but he never tried to get rid of them after that lol

    Try standing on your head DOZ apparently it works lol

    Rub your forehead above the eyes. There are some muscles there that if you relax them will sometimes stop hiccuping. I saw it on a medical show, but it never worked for me.

    yeah but was painful too, ever been in a laighing and hiccuping fit at the same time....it hurt lol

    and Domoviye I have never heard of that one before, but one thing that did cure my hiccups once was falling off the back of a ute into a big pile of mud so you could try that DOZ, although it does tend to hurt lol

    To get rid of hiccups you are meant to alter your breathing in a certain way so that your diaphragm stops spasming. That's why being scared works, because you usually gasp. Same as saying pineapple because the sylllables make you breathe out harshly.

    I think.

    A ute is a utility truck.. like a pick-up truck. Cab infront (Like the front part of a car) and a tray on the back. Very handy for farmers and for the sporty kinds of ute's very loud and showoffy for the guys!

    Maybe death by hiccups??? But I may be a spy for ASIO, staking out other threads to look for the cookie thief...(hmm, are we allowed to cross over threads?)

    My hiccups tend to go away on their own but I just don't notice it for ages! Maybe I'm just a tad too impatient!
