What should I do to stop constant hiccups?
Hello, I have been experiencing constant hiccups. What should I do to treat or stop constant hiccups? I used to experience hiccups once or twice a week but now I experience them more often. I don’t think is it a thing to worry about but last time I got constant hiccups in the middle of my class. Please let me know what should do to stop constant hiccups?
@rez Hello, hiccups usually go away on their own within a few minutes, they can be annoying and interfere with eating and talking. Hiccups happen when the diaphragm spasms involuntarily. There are many reasons for hiccups- eating too much or too quickly, carbonated drinks, spicy foods, and being stressed or emotional. Here are a few things that you can do to stop hiccups like try some breathing exercises like Hold your breath, and Breathe into a paper bag. You can even eat and drink a few things like Drink ice water, Slowly drink a glass of warm water without stopping to breathe, and Gargle ice water. The hiccups go away within a few minutes or hours. If you regularly get hiccups or have hiccups that last for more than two days, talk with your doctor.
