Hiccups is an annoying symptom but it usually lasts only for a few seconds or minutes. They usually can occur spontaneoulsy but more often are precipitated by some combination of eating, drinking or laughing. Most cases also resolve spontaneously, and do not require any treatment department unless prolonged or severe.

Hiccup is caused by a paroxysmal, involuntary action due to the spasmodic contraction of the diaphragm - a muscle that seperates the chest from the abdominal section of the body.

Hiccups are observed in a wide variety of animals and are very common in the fetus. A woman may experience increased hiccupping during pregnancy due to increased inhaling and exhaling of air and the physiological changes of compression of the abdominal contents that are associated with pregnancy.

Hiccups when persistent can interfere with daily routine of a person including eating and sleeping.
