Hiccup is normal, if you eat or drink to fast. By eating too fast (swallowing at a fast rate) can cause stomach upset (in worse situation). Just try to drink lots of water. Hot water especially help.

Your welcome VeenaandNivyah!!1 :D

I experienced that also and tried some remedies to get rid of that.As far as my research goes.I applied "Hughes/Green Hiccups Cure".Try this one:

(1) Pour a TALL glass of water.

(2) Hold your breath... ***

(3) IMPORTANT...PINCH YOUR NOSE CLOSED.

(4) Slowly, take 10 - 20 swallows of the water...while holding your breath with your nose pinched closed.

(5) When you can't stand it any more....you'll know by that overwhelming drowning sensation -- after a gasp, take a deep breath and relax.

This cures the hiccups 99 percent of the time - guaranteed! It's a proven medical remedy! (A second treatment could be necessary for stubborn cases.)

*** For stubborn cases, try EXHALING COMPLETELY and then taking 10 - 20 swallows.

NOW: HERE'S WHY IT WORKS: Hiccups are caused by an uncontrollable spasm in the diaphragm, (the "breathing" muscle). Often, this spasm is triggered by irritable conditions in the smooth muscles of the stomach or the esophagus. The "Hughes/Green Hiccups Cure" forces an increase in the carbon dioxide levels in the diaphragm itself, as well as in the stomach and esophagus. By swallowing, you are making the muscles work -- so they use up their available oxygen and replace it with carbon dioxide. By temporarily discontinuing to breath, you prohibit new oxygen from entering your body and thus create an anaerobic condition in the spasming diaphragm muscle. When the spasming diaphragm and stomach are deprived temporarily of oxygen and encounter the higher levels of carbon dioxide ... you feel that scary drowning sensation! BUT this causes the spasming muscles to relax! The hiccups go away! Essentially, you are "tricking" your body into thinking that it's drowning ... and it decides to use it's resources for something other than hiccuping. The rather "scary" drowning sensation caused by this method is NECESSARY for the method to work. If it's not just a little bit difficult ... it doesn't work....

thanks,

There is another cure your supposed to get a teaspoon put some sugar on the spoon then put vinegar on it and eat the sugar and vinegar together it tastes horrible but its supposed to work it doesn't work on me any more but it used to. So anyone who has hiccups should try that.
