Fingers, thumbs and water to get rid of hicups

Submitted by David

If you have the hicups take a glass of water put your thumbs in your ears your two index fingers pushing your nose together and with the rest of the fingers pick up the glass. Holding all routes for the hicups closed drink the water till you need a breath of air then afterwards you will burp and they will be gone.

I had the hiccups for at least 12 hours. I tried everything. I finally called a friend and he did a google on hiccups which brought him to this page.

I felt silly trying this out but it worked on the first try.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I have hicups that can last for days, and have tried everything. My wife suggested I search the web for a solution. I found this and it worked. Fantastic
 
To good to pass up Comments By: Richard on 2005-01-04
After suffering for about 11 hours with the hicups this method worked. I tried all the usual, drinking upside down, breathing in a bag, holding the breath. Nothing worked. Finally at about 3 am I went to google and found this. This Idea may have sounded a little funny, but worked like a champ and worked in seconds. Highly recomend. Thanks for your insight.

It never hurts to try! Comments By: Gregory Williams on 2007-06-15
I had a big night of boozing last night and as a result I had the worst bout of hicups ever. It started the moment I got up and remained with me till late evening until I had had enough, got up, typed in cure for hicups in google and discovered this clumsy but full proof remedy. I too didn't think it would work but I gave it a shot and it actually did. Thanks to the person who put this on the net, you've helped me and millions before me and millions to come providing of course they are not afraid to try it. Thank You

hiccups Comments By: steve on 2009-04-09
Great after many attempts to get rid of my hiccups, this worked first time. Glad I checked the internet. Thanks again
 
Tip Comments By: Michael on 2009-04-29
If you have a pair of ear plug headphones, then all you need to do is block your nose and drink. It helps, especially for those having trouble lifting a glass with 2 fingers. Best hicup solution by far.
