I get hiccups everyday at least twice. They can be painful sometimes so does anyone know a way to prevent them from happening?
Hiccups can be caused due to many reasons. Usually, it lasts for a few minutes and then goes away on it's own. Most of the times, hiccups are caused due to having a full stomach. The most popular way of getting rid of hiccups is by increasing the level of carbon dioxide in the blood.
You can do that by:
-Drinking some kind of carbonated water/soda like Coca-cola.
-Holding your breath in and counting to ten slowly.
-Breathing into a paper bag rapidly.
-Quickly drinking a cold glass of water.
-Eating a teaspoon of sugar or honey.
You could also try having a teaspoon of vinegar. Although it sounds bad, it stops the contractions of the diaphragm which is the cause of hiccups.
Also, stimulating the Vagus nerves which lie in the back of the roof of your mouth would also help. So, you could stick your finger into your ears and that could stop it as well.
I just read your question again, and realized you'd asked for a way to PREVENT them and not STOP them. I don't think there's a way of preventing hiccups. You could eat slowly and that could help at times. Other than that, I don't think there's any other way, and if there is, I don't know about it yet haha. I hope this helped. :)
drink water for some time.not mutch cuz i think you might get them again
