I have hiccups and I can't concentrate on my chess...
...what do I do?
My girlfriend told me to drink water upside down. Bend over like you're touching the floor and drink a little water and swallow like that...it really works
I will try the water thing
i didn't scare you, huh?
I tried the drinking water upside down trick...IT WORKED!!! I can't believe it. I've been hiccupping for about 45 mins and I try the drinking water upside down trick once and I'm cured. Thank you ChessMarksTheSpot (Mark). Unbelievable!!!
Sorry Planeden I wasn't scared. I did laugh though - good try.
I'm glad to be of help Chris! I didn't believe it either when I first heard it.
it is supposed to work by discombobulating you and confusing your body into forgetting to spasm. when i tried it i got a bunch of water on the floor, out my nose, a big lump on my head, and the hiccups.
discombobulating is the best word I've heard today
I normally find myself discombobulated when I am playing chess!!
me too, but i think that is a result of the hiccup induced head injury and not the cause of the head injury.
as I have said many a time..............................getting rid of hiccups the way advised by you know who was elementary, elementary my dear...................!!
