Hiccup Cure. Squeeze the ear lobe

Submitted by Robin Ayling

Squeeze the ear lobe of the sufferer until he/she is on the threshold between discomfort and pain. I don't know why but in a few minutes the hiccups will stop...

My whole life, whenever I've pushed on or squeezed my left ear in just the right way, it's made me hiccup. Sometimes quite violently. Everyone's always just thought I was nuts so I don't know if it's at all common or what causes it.

That said I tried this tip and indeed it worked. Odd.

squeeze and breathe Comments By: mattyg on 2006-04-03
8 hrs. of hic ups? That's hard to believe. I had the hic ups for almost an hour after eating some Hershey's dark chocolate. Not only did I squeeze both ears, but I also breathed in fast through my nose and exhaled slowly through my mouth. The nerves were back in control within seconds. Thank you Tipking.
