Since a month my health is taking a tole on me.July end I got viral for two days followed by cough and cold for two weeks which I completely ignored and then diarrhea this Sunday morning.I am a person who rarely falls ill and if i do then it takes miles long for me to recuperate.But this time unlike my previous illness i fell prone to hiccups.Hiccups are generally taken lightly as according to many belief they are harmless.Yesterday afternoon i started with loud noise of hiccups.Though my stomach was upset I couldn't resist pastry and hiccups with slight stomach ache made me apprehensive.I thought pastry was the result of my hiccups.By and large people have 2-3 glasses of water which subside the hiccups but it didn't happened with me but being engrossed here and there i ignored it.By evening my hiccups subsided.
My husband arrived I cooked curd rice for myself as a light meal and made sandwich for my husband.we slept after playing scrabble.At around 2:30 I again started having hiccups.Disgusted I was as fear of hiccups being continued for whole night irked me to hell.I drank and drank water.It did no help.So I Google cures of hiccups.
Following were the cure mentioned
1.Take a deep breath and count 1,2---10(They will vanish in a minute and there were comments "thanks it really did wonders")
I tried and tried but of no avail.
2.Stand up tighten your body and exhale.
Tried 3-4 times and it didn't help.
3.Ask some one to close your temples as you might not do it properly.
Already an hour had passed I woke my husband up and asked him to do it.He half asleep did it.But no avail.
To forget my hiccups I started watching you tube where i was learning how to gift rap .But till how long I would have watched them.I again Google searched this time there was an new idea.Take a spoon full of sugar ,plug in your ears and close your temples with some one else help and gulp sugar with a glass of water..
Cant believe they stopped in second.Relieved i was I slept at 4 a.m.
Got up at 9 and I was having tea and was discussing with my husband what a incredible method it was to stop hiccups.Before having tea i had my diarrhea medicine and too my disbelief I started having hiccups again.Imagining myself going through the same trauma again made me cry.I again used the same trick but it didn't help this time.
After an hour I again tried out.My husband closed my ear and i closed my temples and gulped sugar with water.Phew!! they were gone..
Sitting at home I want to let other know the easy and simple trick.Though i am going to visit the doctor for continuous hiccups problem but for a first aid its a complete full on.And last but not the least I salute Google for elucidating all problem of life.:)
