Hiccups for almost 24 hours now! HELP!

Written By: Gary on October 5, 2006 10 Comments

So I’ve had hiccups for almost 24 hours and I’ve tried all sorts of suggestions. None have helped. They’ve stopped occasionally, but not at any of the times I tried any home remedies…

Starting and stopping seems to be completely random. Any thoughts???


Things I’ve tried:

  • Drinking from the far side of the glass (this one always works).
  • Exhaling and drinking the water before inhaling.
  • Drinking a big glass though a few hiccups.
  • A big spoonful of sugar.

      Uhhh… I got nothin’ – sorry. :-(

      This may be serious… have you called a doctor’s office?

      Get a small lunch bag, hold tight at open end, leaving just a small enough space to breath through. Now breath in and out for a minute or so. The extra carbon dioxide will get rid of the hiccups in no time.

      Good luck!

      When’s the last time you told a lie?

      Well, I say EMBRACE your condition and go for the record! Can’t really say what your quality of life will be, but at least you’ll live to be over a hundred years old!

      Think about this — when’s the last time you broke a promise?
