Hiccup

Today,i hiccup a lot.
Then i told my friend i keep on hiccup today,
she ask me why?
I said i don't know...
Will check it out and let her know...

This is the answer i get from Wikipedia....
"While many cases develop spontaneously, hiccups are known to be triggered by specific events, such as lack of water, eating too fast, being hungry for long, taking a cold drink while eating a hot meal, burping, eating very hot or spicy food, laughing vigorously, coughing, drinking alcoholic beverages in excess, crying out loud (sobbing causes air to enter the stomach), talking too long, clearing the throat, by some of the stronger opiate painkillers such as Heroin, Morphine, and Oxycodone or from lack of vitamins. Hiccups may be caused by pressure to the phrenic nerve by other anatomical structures, or having the sensation that there is food in the esophagus, rarely by tumors and certain kidney disease. The American Cancer Society reports that 30% of chemotherapy patients suffer singultus as a side effect of treatment."

Hi one of the way to get rid of hiccup is to drink water just before it happened.

I was hiccuping nonstop last sunday, talked too fast and not enough water in the system. One of the remedy is to swallow one small teaspoon of sugar.

Happy weekend!
