    I have had them for about a day straight now. They are the really painful ones. Nothing seems to help. :(

    Any ideas??

    Never have had them that seriously....am so sorry for you! Must be awful! :hugs:

    What always works for my less intense ones is to drink a small glass of water and then hold your breath while you count to 25 in your head. It does work...sure am wishing and hoping it might work for you, too. :)

    A spoonful of sugar. A physician friend affirms this.

    When's the last time you saw a white horse? Seriously-think about it and say it out loud. I swear it works-it even works on the kids at school when they have them.

    Drink water out of the wrong side of a cup. Lean over a sink and drink, not out of the side closest to you like normal, but the other side. In order to do this, you kind of have to lean the cup forward and lean over it. I hope that made sense. It's weird but it works.

    Also if you try holding your breath, make sure your lungs are completely full of air when you hold your breath.

    If they don't go away in another day or so, see your doctor. Some medical conditions can cause hiccups. There are also treatments for persistent hiccups.
