Hiccups
Chaitra poornima

Why do we get hiccups ?

Answers
Venantius Prerira
Because sometimes due to gas an air bubble gets stuck in our throat. Hence we get hiccups.
Chirag Sangani
Hiccups originate from the diaphragm. This is a dome-shaped muscle at the bottom of your chest, and all hiccups start here. The diaphragm almost always works perfectly. It pulls down when you inhale to help pull air into the lungs, and it pushes up when you exhale to help push air out of the lungs. But sometimes the diaphragm becomes irritated, and when this happens, it pushes up in a jerky way that makes your breath come out differently from how it normally does. When this irregular breath hits your voice box, you're left with a big hiccup. Some things that irritate the diaphragm are eating too quickly or too much, an irritation in the stomach or the throat, or feeling nervous or excited. Almost all cases of the hiccups last only a few minutes. Some cases of the hiccups can last for days or weeks, but this is very unusual, and it's usually a sign of another medical problem.

Our body needs a sufficient amount of water, without which digestion is incomplete. When there is a scarcity of water in the body, the brain sends the message and thus we hiccup.
Jinal V Shah
We get HICCUPS because of the sudden rush of air into the lungs which causes the space between the vocal folds to close, creating the noise ''Hic''.
sapna
When there is a scarcity of water in our body we generally get hiccups, it is the way how our body asks for water.
Nana
I usually get hiccups when I am very hungry and eat very fast. Thats why water is a good suggestion to prevent hiccups.
anusha
you can get hiccups by eating very fast if you really eat very fast then you can get very strange hiccups and if you didnt drink water then also you can get hiccups
ankita dubey

Nkitha
We get hicups only when we do not drink water properly.
Caleb
