Last week I was down due to a small flu.
Strangely, HICCUPS were my biggest problem, from morning, to the evening.
From the outside, it sounds funny, and makes people laugh, but I can assure you, a day long hiccup is really bad. It was very tiring, at some point I was totally exhausted.
I tried many ways to stop it, I looked up many tips and advices with Google, but none of them did really work.
Many sites write that elevated CO2 in the blood can help.
One way to achieve this is to hold one's breath for as long as possible.
When I held it back several times, then sometimes it finally stopped.
I found the source for my hiccups is cold air, so I avoided all cold air contact possible, and ate warm things to warm up my lungs.
I'm interested in all type of tips, but mainly in things that you have tried and work for you. Also, if you have a link to some scientific evidence, that could be useful.
Do you often hiccups?
What's the cause of hiccups for you?
How do you stop it?
Thanks a lot!
