LET ME COME BACK TO THE 'SHROOM!
If so, what causes it in your case? And how do you remedy it?
I don't get any of that. I think you're a lot smarter than I am.Baby Luigi said:I think the glass of water prevents you from breathing for a short period of time (because of the epiglottis covering your trachea) and thus may be able to reset the diaphragm.
I dunno, I'm trying to draw conclusions from this
Thank you I will try that next timeBaby Luigi said:Don't say that, everyone has different levels of intelligence
Anyway, what I'm saying is that your diaphragm, the muscle beneath the lungs, helps with the breathing. When it gets messed up (I forgot what causes), it causes hiccups. When you drink, you are unable to breathe because an epiglottis covers your windpipe to prevent food from going down there. Since you can't breathe when you're drinking, what I'm thinking is that it gives your diaphragm a chance to reset and rest.
I might be wrong, but that's my hypothesis there.
Some of those sound like good cures or possible cures, and some of them sound like total bullcrap!Drilbur said:I usually get them when eating too fast. Now for some supposed cures for the hiccups.
Hold your breath for one minute.
Swallow a teaspoon of sugar.
Drink a glass of water slowly.
Drink water from the opposite side of the cup.
Have someone surprise you.
Breathe into a paper bag.
Give a forceful yank to your tongue.
Chew and swallow dry bread.
Put your knees up to your chest or lean forward.
Don't think about your hiccups.
Cover your head with a wastebasket and have someone beat on it.
Spit on a rock and then turn it over.
Wet a piece of red thread with your tongue, hang the thread from your forehead and look at it.
Suck on a slice of lemon.
Go for a walk in the sunshine.
