Nope...I kid you not. Dr. Francis Fesmire won the 2006 "Ig" Nobel in Medicine for his original work on terminating hiccups by digital rectal massage.

You're aware that the Ignobel price is basically a parody of the Nobel prize, aren't you...?

inserting a finger into a patient’s anus

Even if this thing is legit.. I somehow do not see many doctors wanting to stick their finger's up a patients ass.. Plus, they would have to use a condom or something to prevent the spread of STIs, no??

I'll take the hiccups, thanks. But this may explain why BAB hasn't had the hiccups since childhood.

Tickling the roof of your mouth with the tip of your tongue will usually work very well - it just doesn't offer the same level of entertainment to your audience...! Big grin

But if its me doing the stimulating, then I'm the audience. And if I'm the audience for tickling the inside of my own poop chute, then I need to consider changing the channel post haste.  yuck

Doctors do far worse than this on a daily basis. My wife-to-be is a nurse and she routinely has to perform this duty, along with inserting foley catheters (in the urethra) and a wide variety of other things I'd prefer not to think about my future bride doing to anyone.

Plus, I doubt this Doc stick his finger in the man's butt without gloves on.

Would analogue rectal massage work? Or just be smoother?

You (through no fault of your own) do not know medicine. Rectal exams are a daily way of life for most doctors for prostate exams, to check rectal tone, to check for rectal bleeding, and to check for rectal masses. We do use gloves though I have heard of stories of overzealous medical students and residents who are so intent on just getting it over with that they forget to don the gloves. No, we don't put Condoms on our fingers.

The original study can be found in Volume 17 page 872 of the Annals of Emergency Medicine, a respected Emergency Medicine journal that is on par with The New England Journal of Medicine.
