The Hiccup Girl

February 20th, 2007

Hiccup girl While many cases of hiccup develop spontaneously, hiccups are known to develop often in specific situations, for example eating too quickly, eating very hot or spicy food, taking a cold drink while eating a hot meal, laughing vigorously, drinking an alcoholic beverage to excess, and electrolyte imbalance.

I am sure a lot of you experience hiccup before… there is nothing too interesting about it, but today let me show you a young girl who has had hiccups for over 3 weeks!

Check out the following video of the girl on the show. Let her share with you her experience.

If you think this is amazing, then you are right. But do you know she is definitely not the world hiccup record holder?

The world record for non-stop hiccups belongs to an Iowa farmer who began hiccupping in 1922 while slaughtering a huge hog. According to the Guinness Book of Records, the man hiccupped 12 times a minute, 19,000 times a day which lasted for 68 years until they mysteriously stopped in 1990. Unfortunately, he died 1 year after his hiccups stopped.

Although the hiccups did not prevent him from carrying on everyday activities, they disrupted his sleep, led to extra food needs (to replace amounts thrown up while hiccupping) and often shook loose his false teeth! Haha… 🙂

    I think that its really amazing that this can happen to people. I have two questions: How do u give advice to stop hiccups? & how do u write your own weird experiences.

    Perhaps a good chiropractor would be able to help you. Maybe some nerve is being pinched.
