Hiccups? Diaphragm and Hiccups Other reasons How to get rid of them So, what are hiccups? In conclusion, hiccups are created by irritating the diaphragm. They can be caused by many different reasons such as eating too fast and swallowing too much air. Hiccups can be very annoying but they can be cured with many different remedies. So please, give your diaphragm a break! Why People Hiccup The diaphragm is one of the many reasons why we hiccup
Our diaphragm controls the air pull into our lungs, and out of our lungs
When we eat too much or too fast, the diaphragm jerks air into our lungs, causing hiccups
Hiccups only last a couple minutes at the most
Another thing that causes the diaphragm to jerk is nervousness and excitement.
These are the reasons as to why the diaphragm causes hiccups Eating too FAST:
If a person eats too fast, he or she can swallow air along with food and end up with the hiccups.
Eating too MUCH: Especially fatty foods (Ex. Fast Food like: McDonalds, Wendy's, Burger King, etc.)
Drinking too MUCH: Such as alcohol or carbonated drinks
Swallowing too much air
A sudden change in stomach temperature, such as drinking a hot beverage and then a cold beverage. Amber, Safiya & Anson
