Has anyone else tried rubbing their earlobes to stop hiccups? I've tried it and it works!!!
Hhmmm this sounds interesting and is the first time that I heard about it. I will try to do this trick when and if I got a hiccup the next time around. What I only knew is the traditional cessation of breathing for a moment.
That's cool, I'll have to try it! I just tell the kids to hold their breath for 10 mins. Whether it's the shock and horror that I tell them that or their effort to hold their breath for a long time, it seems to work a lot of the time. But then we just laugh and have to start all over again!
I have not tried rubbing my earlobes but I have tried holding my breath while touching the tips of my two index fingers together and that works too.
I'll have to try this. The best way for me is to get rid of hiccups is by holding my breath and drinking water from a glass backwards(from the opposite side of the glass) by bending over. Sounds more difficult that it really is. Your ways sounds much simpler.
Awesome. I have not tried this, but I have tried lifting my arm in the air and pressing my index finger behind my ear and that works, sort of like acupressure.
Will have to try. At present when I get hiccups, I put a finger in one ear (am deaf in the other one), then I sip slowly at some water. It seems to get rid of them 90% of the time...
For me, the remedy that usually works is taking a about a half teaspoon of sugar and putting it on the tip of my tongue. Learned it from my mom--that's how she'd fix the issue for me when I was a kid. It seems to work. Just let the sugar dissolve on its own.
Sometimes I would also hold my breath, but I never found that alone to work--the hiccups would just continue anyway while I was holding my breath!
I never heard of the rubbing the earlobes trick--might try it next time. (Must be similar to the accupressure trick of massaging the 'web' between thumb and forefinger for a headache remedy.)
Quite funny! I can imagine all you people going into distortions - would love a You Tube of each effort, lol!
I have found that if I allow myself to belch....not allowed in polite society I suppose.... this allows the gas in my stomach, which pressing upwards onto the diaphragm, to escape; and this fairly quickly gets rid of my hiccups.
Usually, famous last words!
I have never heard of or tried the earlobes remedy, but I'll have it give it try when the occasion calls for it. Here's my remedy: take a deep breath, then pinch/hold your nose, and take 11 swallows of water. Not sure where I heard about this particular remedy but I've been using it for years to stop hiccups and it always works. :-)
No, but I'm glad to add this to my arsenal of remedies to stop hiccups. It's certainly easy enough to do, so it will be the first thing I'll try next time I get hiccups. I'll share your tip, too. Thanks!
I was always told to hold my breath for 10 seconds, but it didn't work all the time, or given a sharp slap on the back. I do remember one occasion where I had hiccups in a French lesson and my teacher, ironically called Mr French, turned round and shouted at me. The shock was enough to stop me hiccuping, but now I know, just rubbing my earlobes is enough.

Has anyone else tried coconut water? Love or hate?I've recently discovered coconut water and have researched how it's great for rehydration after a workout. I'm planning to integrate it into my diet. Anyone else take it regularly?

Is anyone else really really proud of our protesting country?Pride is not an emotion I thought would have been very prevelant for me after Trump took office; but I find myself impressed with protestors coming out every time Trump does something silly - which happens often, LoL! United we stand,...

Is anyone else experiencing insomnia? How about sleep talking?I always had insomnia and was a sleep talker from an early age. The past week or two have been worse than the rest. I'm wondering if there's a reason for it. Something in my diet or stress levels maybe?
