Hiccups cure. This video is on treatment, cures and how to stop and get rid of hiccups fast, as well as what are hiccups.

A hiccup is an automatic action (a reflex) that the body can't control. During a hiccup your diaphragm (the muscle under your lungs that helps you breathe) contracts. Immediately after this the top of your windpipe (your glottis) closes, making the typical 'hic' sound.

I hope my tips help you and good luck! By the way maybe we can do our own little science experiment and see which remedy works best, so please leave a comment below and let me know which one works for you. I will then tally the results up and leave a pinned comment, this may be useful for everyone in the future.

HICCUPS SYMPTOMS:
Everyone has had hiccups, and knows exactly what they are and what they feel like. They affect women and men equally, although persistent hiccups occur much more commonly in men. They happen mainly in the evening.

There is an important difference between short bouts of hiccups and persistent hiccups (lasting longer than 48 hours). Persistent hiccups are more likely to be linked to an underlying illness and you may need medical tests.

CAUSES OF SHORT BOUT HICCUPS:
Most people have bouts of hiccups from time to time. In most cases they start for no apparent reason, last a short while and then stop. Sometimes they are due to:

• Sudden excitement or emotional stress.
• A temporary swollen stomach caused by overeating or eating too fast, drinking fizzy drinks, or swallowing air.
• A sudden change in temperature (very hot or cold food or drinks, a cold shower, etc).
• Alcohol.
• Excess smoking.

CAUSES OF PERSISTENT HICCUPS:
Persistent hiccups are rare. In some cases, persistent hiccups are caused by an underlying disease. Over 100 diseases have been reported to cause hiccups. Some are common, such as acid reflux, and some are rare. You would normally have other symptoms apart from the hiccups.

In some cases of persistent hiccups there is no apparent cause. However, the persistent hiccups can become exhausting and distressing. Examples of conditions which can cause persistent hiccups can be found at the following link:

Please see your doctor if you have persistent hiccups (lasting longer than 48 hours), as medical tests and investigations may be required.

HICCUP REMEDIES:
There are many popular remedies that are said to stop a short bout of hiccups but they are based on people's individual experiences. It is not clear how effective they are, as they have not been tested by research trials. They include the following:

•Using a technique called the Valsalva manoeuvre. The way to do this is to take a deep breath in, then keep the air inside you while pushing with your muscles as if to force the air out. This is like pushing in childbirth or straining on the toilet.
• Remedy from Dr Eric Voigt and apparently it has a high success rate. Drink water from the opposite side so tilt your head down and drink the water this way. Because of the way the abdomen contracts it may stop hiccups.
• Swallowing granulated sugar.
• Sipping iced water.
• Biting on a lemon or tasting vinegar.
• Pulling on the tongue.
• Breathing- Either hold your breath for a short time, breath fast or breathe into a paper bag.
• Compress the diaphragm by either pulling the knees up to the chest or leaning forward.
• Swallow water while closing the nose.
• Ask someone to scare you.
