Picture of Why It Works.

first i need to tell u something. i used to love science so...

Most simple cases of hiccups come after eating or drinking too much or too quickly. The stomach, which is situated right below the diaphragm, becomes distended and irritates it. This will cause the diaphragm to contract, as it does when we breathe in. and the lozenges relax the diaphragm.

1 tsp of sugar works REALLY well too. : )

If you can get one, a good sexy kiss works every time.

The following cure works very well, and dates back to Plato's "Symposium," written "not earlier than 385 B.C." according to the Penguin Classics introduction. One of the characters in the dialogue is a doctor, Eryximachus, who offers this advice:
If the hiccup is too violent for [holding one's breath or gargling], get something to tickle your nose with, and sneeze. One or two sneezes, and it will stop, however violent. (Walter Hamilton, trans.)
---For the "tickle," sprinkle some black pepper in your hand, and, with your face aimed downward about 6" above your hand, blow a short, sudden puff into the pepper, so that only the very fine powder is launched into a dust cloud. Take a good snort, and sneeze. This "powder-puff" technique keeps the larger grains of pepper, which can cause a painful burning sensation, out of your nose.

Hiccups do NOT come from stuff that's in the back of your throat. It's a camping of the spleen due to an irritation such as very spicy food, swallowed air or something. The best way to get rid of it is to concentrate on something else like deep breathing or something unusual like holding your breath. and btw, it's never good to fight the symptoms of something (i.e. numbing your throat) but to fight the cause. If you got a crumb in the back of your throat you shuld drink water and wash it away.

I'm not sure what you mean by "camping of the spleen" - but interested. Hiccups are caused by involuntary spasms of the diaphragm. L

bar trick... half glass of water... strike a match... Throw it in glass... tell the "afflicted" one to drink the water but "don't drink the match".... Works every time!!!

The best cure that I've found for hiccoughs (works every time for me) is to raise your left hand above your head, and drink some water. Simple and it works :-)

Put lozenges in your mouth, hiccup and choke to death.

ycc2106 (author)2009-07-09

Tried everything - nothing works, lozenges neither. I think at some point it's psychological... seems I'm a blockhead.

What I do is take a deep breath and clench my abdominal muscles. Works every time.
