I know it sounds nuts, but that hiccup trick works for me; where you get a tall cup of water, sit it on the table, and drink from the opposite side of the glass. It may have something to do with the way your air passages are as you drink
Also for hiccups, try a spoonful of peanut butter
The only real hiccup cure is one that treats the hiccups for what they really are. Hiccups are caused by the diaphragm spasming. Taking in as much air as possible, makes the lungs expand and push down on the diaphragm. This stretches the diaphragm out to it original position and shape. Hold the breath as long as possible, just don't pass out, and let it out. Voila', no more hiccups. It works every time.
If all of the above dont work.. just watch a horror movie or let something scare U.

My fiancee has hypothyroidism and has had chronic hiccups for a few years now. Her former endocrinologist told her it was caused by her nodules. Now her new endocrinologist told her that is highly unlikely and should see a gastroenterologist. Which is true? And is there something that can be done to end the chronic hiccups permanently?
Hi My one year old has been hiccuping quite a lot today.she has never had any reflux issues and it really doesn t seem to be bothering her.
