Finally hiccup remedies include:

Hiccups are an involuntary spasm of the diaphragm muscle that causes an individual to repeatedly hiccup, or gasp for air. There are a few hiccup cures that may help to stop hiccups, but you should consult a doctor or qualified healthcare professional before attempting any hiccup remedy.
Hiccups can be caused by a number of factors such as eating too quickly, drinking carbonated beverages and eating fatty foods. You might also get hiccups if you have gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), which is the backward flow of stomach acid into your esophagus. A hiccup cure of simply waiting for them to go away on their own may work for some people, but others who suffer from chronic hiccups usually find it necessary to seek medical advice and treatment.
