What is Hiccup?

A hiccup is a sudden, involuntary contraction (spasm) of the diaphragm muscle. When the muscle spasms, the vocal cords snap shut, producing the hiccup sound.

    • eating or drinking lot
    • diseases that irritate the nerves that control the diaphragm,
    • the abdominal surgery took place
    • strokes
    • brain tumours,
    • noxious fumes, and
    • some medications.

It is very rare to seek medical emergency for a hiccup unless it is a common symptom which is cured in a short period of time. Doctors should be consulted if hiccup lasts for a long time more than three hours. It should also be considered if our sleeping and eating habits are getting disturbed.

Home remedies or some ways to get rid of hiccups are:

    • Breath holding
    • Drinking a glass of water soon
    • Pulling hard on the tongue
    • Biting on a lemon

Hiccups can be prevented by avoiding overeating habits, eating very fast, or drinking too much to prevent hiccup.
