Hiccups 😁


Recommended Posts

OK this is a bit random 😂 

Since about the age of 12 I've been able to stop hiccups by physical means, compression of diaphragm and surrounding muscles is the best description I can give.

 

I don't get how I have not been able to get others to do this, over time though I have improved on this and can pretty much stop them in their tracks without physical intervention.

 

Is anyone else able to control them.

Many moons ago I once had them for 3 days straight :crybaby:

Was that bad the Wife asked me to sleep on sofa :classic_blink:

 

So to answer your question no I cant!!

Incidentally the guiness record for hiccups is 68 years :shock:

Dear God I'm annoyed if I have 2, I class that as a fail.

Jeez poor guy. 
If I drink a cold or iced fizzy drink it will give me hiccups, I then have one chance of getting rid of them right at the start and if they don’t go quickly enough I’ll have hiccups on n off for 3-4 days!

Same here. My wife bakes for cake Friday for the school she works at. It gives the staff something to look forward to and is very popular - but not with me.

Usually I stop them with a slow long breath in then an even slower breath out while I relax my chest. A bit like a quick meditation.

It works every time after the first or second hiccup

Big deep breath in and hold it (although make sure you start breathing again before tuning blue and passing out :classic_laugh:) , don't know why but it seems to work for me .... That said I only seem to get hiccups after eating spicy food for some reason...
