      Growing up, once any of us started having hiccups,mum would call out,’Bring🥛for him’. Once you drank it, the hiccups stopped😂

      Well,the WATER didn’t stop the HICCUP😂

      What stopped it then?

      Before I say, let me tell you a few things about HICCUPS👇

       

      Though annoying,HICCUPS are a common part of life. It involves repeated spasms/sudden movements of the diaphragm that you can’t control.

       

      The diaphragm is the muscle separating your chest from your stomach area & plays a big role in breathing.

       

      The spasms causes the ‘HIC’ sound.

       

      CAUSES

      – Eating too much

      – Taking excess alcohol/soft drinks

      – Getting overexcited/anxious/stressed emotionally

      – Sudden stomach temperature changes

      – Swallowing air eg smoking,chewing gum

       

      Hiccups from the above last <48hrs. Any hiccup >this might be from an underlying medical issue.

       

      For most of us,hiccup clears BY ITSELF after some mins,WATER OR NOT!

       

      Most of the home remedies we do like drinking🥛,putting thread on our head,jumping 7 times etc HAS NO MEDICAL BACKING
