Hiccups - How do you get rid of them??

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies -

I was out tonight and got the hiccups...actually I still have them as I type this :)

I am just wondering what do you do when you get the hiccups - I have done everything water, holding my breath....

I have "fake" hiccups (dont have a better name for them). I hiccup once or twice every few hours and its worse when I drink. I've had them for about 10 years now... they are pretty funny and it isnt as bad as normal hiccups which I also get occasionally, as well.

My "fake" ones seem to be permanent and in fact, I think people will be disappointed if I don't do it during our ceremony! Its been a running joke for years, but I can't even make the noise intentionally. Sorry definitely went way off track there!!!

 

For the normal hiccups, I suck on a lemon wedge with sugar on it and bitters if you can find it. Works everytime!

I get this whenever I eat any type of carb too fast without drinking something to wash it down! The only thing I know that works is truly holding your breath, AFTER you've exhaled! I think it only works when your lungs are empty, and hold it until you just can't hold it any longer! Hope they went away finally!

When I get hiccups I drink a glass of water with a paper towel over the top (so you drink through the paper towel) and it always gets rid of them.

My best tip is take a sip of water and then plug your nose as you swallow. Sounds funny, looks even funnier, but it's get rid every time!

My trick is to:

Breath in deeply, swallow, breath in deeply again (no exhaling in between), swallow, breath in deeply one last time, swallow...then exhale. Works every time. Good luck!

Well thankfully I don't ever have to worry if I'm near my husband. Hiccups are caused in your diaphragm. To quote him "usually caused by a spasm of the diaphragm muscle caused by irritation of the phrenic nerve". So he pinches this one nerve in my neck and holds it and they stop almost instantly. But if I'm not near him take one gigantic breathe out and they will stop (also learned by him).

 

So Carla, I was wondering if you've ever had someone check that...b/c my guess would be thats whats wrong with you and maybe you could get it checked out and maybe stoppedhuh.gif

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
