You’ve tried being startled, you’ve tried honey, water and so on. Ok, this will sound totally wrong, but a paper written by the Department of Internal Medicine from the Bnai Zion Medial Center in Haifa Israel, found that the most effective way to cure intractable hiccups is a butt massage with your finger!
Wait …wait…wait…calm down, get the story.
A 60-year old man with acute pancreatis developed persistent hiccups after they put a nasogastric tube in him. When they removed it, the hiccups didn’t stop. They tried a bunch of methods, and none work.
At some point, they tried a digital rectal massage, aka they massaged his butt with a finger. The hiccups immediately stopped. He got the hiccups a few hours later, and the same technique worked again. That was the second time this had been observed.
The study concluded this should be tried first before recurring to any type of pharmaceutical methods.
