How to overcome annoying hiccups ?

Friends : We often get hiccups but when hiccups last longer these become annoying and at times embarrassing too.

Let us first know how hiccups are caused .

Normal inspiration and expiration follow a smooth rhythm but during a hiccup epiglottis snaps shut and diaphragm contracts —and that shrill sound comes out often glorfied by poets but in real life annoying.

There’s often no obvious reason why we get hiccups, but some people find certain things trigger their hiccups, such as:

  • stress
  • strong emotions, like excitement eating and drinking
  • In rare cases, hiccups that last longer than 48 hours can be due to a medical condition or a medicine you’re taking.

See your doctor if your hiccups:

  • last longer than 48 hours
  • are recurrent i.e.come back very often and are affecting your life

Your doctor will try to find out if your hiccups are caused by a health condition or medication you’re taking – treating the condition or changing your medicine should stop your hiccups.

If there’s no obvious cause, they might be able to prescribe medicine to treat your hiccups. This doesn’t work for everyone.
