|Getting Rid of Hiccups
Do holding your breath, getting scared or breathing into a paper bag cure the
hiccups. For some people, these methods do work. But, if you already tried these
and still have the hiccups give one of the following suggested cures a try:
1. A spoonful of sugar swollowed dry.
2. Suck in and swallow your own breath. (If you know how to make yourself
burp on command, it's the same kind of motion).
3. Tickle the roof of your mouth with a Q-tip.
4. Suck on a lemon wedge.
Do any of these work? Who knows. The sucking air one has worked for me before
a few times, other people swear that sugar is the percent cure for hiccups.
If you have hiccups for more than a few days, you should go see a doctor as
it could be a medical problem.
