Hiccups are spasmodic rises of the diaphragm beneath the lungs, usually caused by nerve stimulus or digestive irregularities. They can usually be stopped by increasing the carbon dioxide content of the lungs (breathing in and out of a paper bag, for example). Drinking water or consuming certain foods may stop hiccups, when stomach irritation is the location of the cause.
*If you notice ALL the answers regarding drinking, swallowing upside down, singing hanging from an antique willow bush at noon on Tuesday while sipping wine,...the thing they all have in common is the need to hold your breath while disguised as some other nonsense behavior. Somewhere beneath the diaphragm is a nerve called the vagus nerve that causes spasms in the diaphragm and causes hiccups. The cure is carbon dioxide. Enough repetitions of holding your breath builds up enough carbon dioxide and stops hiccups.
This is the most consistent method for getting rid of hiccups. This only works though if you catch it early though.
In severe cases, there is a surgical procedure where they clip the nerve that makes you hiccup.
If you want to cure the hiccups you have to make a medicine using plants.
Sorry to dissapoint, but pineapple definietly can no cure hiccups. hiccups go and come whenever they like. Trust me i have tried every possible thing to make my hiccups go when every i had them but they just wont go.

Drag the person who has the hiccups onto the bathroom sink, they will drink water, and the hiccups will be cured. If it is the first time that you are curing hiccups, you will receive a trophy.
to cure hiccups is drinking a quarter bottle of maple syrup. honestly it works i done it yesterday as the Brit awards were on
i have no idea how you get hiccups you could probably find it on Wikipedia but the best cure i know is to have a lime slice dip it in sugar then your hiccups are gone this is what i always did hope it helped :)
they drink lot of water
No. Well it never works on me.
suck on peppermints try it, it helps
You don't need to take any meds to cure hiccups. Just have a little peanut butter!
The mechanism of action that causes hiccups is the result of a diaphragm spasm. By holding your breath, drinking a full glass of water and such you cause the diaphragm to relax and therefore stop the spasms and hiccups.
There is no way to permanently solve the hiccups. However, a great cure is to place a paper towel over a cup of water and take a few sips out of the cup. If the hiccups are still present, take a few more sips to ensure the hiccups will be gone.
You canot instantly cure the hiccups because it involves a spasm of a large muscle (your diaphragm). The best way to get rid of your hiccups is to hold your breath until you feel as though you are going to pass out. But prevention is even better. If you get the hiccups a lot you might want to stay away from sodas and other beverages with carbonation-like beer. And no straws for you-the act of sipping through the straw increases the amount of gas in your stomach and therefore your chances of getting the hiccups.
i don't know but it wil be really bad for your teeth
It does not. Although there are many ideas that work for different people, hiccups are a synchronous diaphragmic flutter, caused by a disturbed diaphragm.
Drag a person over in the kitchen and have them get a drink, then it will give you a trophie! :)
No, it makes your hicups even worse because your laughing about it, <3
It's easy, just drag them to the sink and have them drink water. Same way u cure it in real life.
Sadly nothing, although it does work well to cure hiccups. Fill a spoonfull up of vinegar and some sugar, swallow, and hiccups are gone.
Easy. Just drag them to the kitchen or bathroom sink and they'll drink their water.
you didn;t even tell us what the heck you DO WITH THEM, but for your sake, i'll tell you its because you believe it will work. every time, its stopped the hiccups, because what your brain does as soon as you treat them is stop thinking about how you have hiccups, and start thinking, in the back of your head, of how you got rid of them.
Probably not, but swallowing a teaspoonful of sugar (without washing it down with water) usually does the trick.
It's okay to drink water to cure the hicups but don't overdo it.
