Why does this always work.

  1. Oct 24, 2009 #1
    EVERY time I get the hiccups, I bite my right pinkie and it is gone immediately. I've done this dozens of times throughout the years and this always worked even with the most horrible hiccups.

    Why does this work? Pressure points?

    Does this work with other people(e.g. you)?

    Never tried bitting my pinkie when I got hiccups.

    The pressure points that are along all your fingers are responsible for dealing with problems related to your sinus/face your neck etc.
