They come unannounced and mysteriously as they go. It can certainly stop us in our track and cut us off in mid -sentence. What it is?

~~HICCUPS

Everyone gets hiccups every now and then. It maybe because of excessive laughing, heavy meals, and emotional stimuli that can sent of this little explosion of air. But there are also certain things that can trigger hiccups that we may not be aware. These could also include certain medication such as sleeping pills or even spicy food.

I remember the hearsay my mother used to say to us everytime we suddenly hiccups, "You steal an egg." I don't know where that hearsay or rumour came from but that what's she always say and I didn't even bothered to asked why.

The hiccups occurs when the diaphragm suddenly amd involuntarily contracts. This contraction draws air into the lungs and if this sudden influx of air happens when your voice box is contracted.

How long does hiccups lasts?

Hiccups are common and can affect everyone during their lifetime. It only lasts for a few minutes and go away on its own.

What can stop hiccups?

Most simple treatment to stop hiccups are few common mechanisms. Holding your breath, drinking water quickly, tugging your tongue or getting someone to scare you are some of the common treatments.

The effectiveness of these treatments are not been confirmed. However, they are easy to perform and have low risk of complications and there is no harm in trying them.


Based on my experienced, everytime I hiccups, drinking water was effective. It really stops the hiccups.

How about you, what is your effective remedy when you hiccups?

Nice article friend. It is really helpful. Moreover, hiccups are usually temporary, but in rare cases, they can stick around -- for a while. It’s usually because of damage or aggravation to the nerves connected to the diaphragm. Thank you
