        Hi A,

        If i was trying to get rid of hiccups – i would hold my breath – or drink water from the wrong side of a mug!

        Hope that answers your question! let me know if you want to know more!

        I definitely think a good old scare would clear them right up.. Holding your breath for a few seconds is probably the easiest way though!
