Hiccups are a synchronous diaphragmatic flutter, which happens when the diaphragm contracts uncontrollably. Hiccups can be caused by eating or drinking too quickly and swallowing air, drinking carbonated beverages. They may also have other surprising causes, like excitement, emotional stress, disorders, and medications. In most cases, hiccups will go away on their own. However, there are numerous home remedies for hiccups that may work for you.
