It seems that there's no proven good way to stop hiccups, and the tricks seem to work in some people but not in others. However here are ones that are particularly useful for me:

- have someone tickle me, say really silly things etc. to make me laugh like mad and can't breathe. (This is extremely effective for me)
- hold a mouthful of water, and sllloooooowwwllllyyyyy swallow it in ten different sips.
- press my diaphragm downwards. This is hard to explain, but the feeling is as if you're swallowing hard, and the "air" is pushed downwards to your diaphragm and your stomach expands. Try swallowing hard and perhaps you can understand what I mean. You'll have to keep this posture for a while and hold your breath while you're doing it.Health Question & Answer

I agree with net7674. For some reason drinking like that helps.

When I get hiccups really bad, drinking a bit of pickle juice helps me.

If you can't get to anything, try simply sitting down and bending over while taking deep breaths. But not with your mouth wide open. Almost like you're breathing through a straw. It sometimes helps me.

Good luck with the hiccups. They are annoying :)Health Question & Answer
