I keep getting hicups and cannot figure out how to get rid of them? Does anyone have a good method of getting rid of hicups? I have tried many methods and none seem to work. Please give me some ideas?

When I have hiccups I take a deep breath and then hold it in for a few seconds and then let it out and then do it again right away and I repeat this maybe three or four times. Sometimes I also drink me a full glass of water really fast and that also works with me. It is worth a shot. Hope it works. If not, stand on your head. LOL!

To get rid of hicupps I usually just drink alot of water I know alot of people say stuff like if you get scared you may lose the hicupps but that never works for me I just drink alot of water and it's gone.

Since I was a kid my grandmother used to tell us this trick to get rid of hiccup: Take a big glass of water or any liquid, drink a little bit and then wait few seconds and drink a little bit again. Do that 7 times and your hiccups will disappear! I have found that this works almost all the time. Now for the number 7, I don't know where my grandmother got that from. Now everytime somebody has hiccups in front of me I tell them the story of my grandmother.
