Have you ever had the hiccups and just couldn't get them to stop? One doctor claims he has the solution that has worked for his patients every time.
New York University otolaryngologist Dr. Erich Voigt says the method has worked for "everyone I've ever encountered."
Voigt says the trick is to drink water from the opposite side of a cup by tilting your head down.
"Because of the way it's making the muscles contract, it stops hiccups," Voigt said, "including for a gentleman I saw who had been hiccuping for a week and was having severe abdominal pains and could barely eat."
