Hiccups Information

Hiccups can be described as brief, irritable spasms of the diaphragm that can last from a few seconds to a few minutes. There are basically three types of hiccups - transient or acute hiccups, persistent hiccups and intractable hiccups. While the transient or acute hiccups last only for a few minutes, persistent hiccups last longer than 48 hours, but less than a month. Intractable hiccups last for more than two months and are often the result of an underlying medical condition. To know more about the causes and symptoms of hiccups, go through the lines below.

Causes Of Hiccups
Symptoms Of Hiccups
The only symptoms of hiccups are a characteristic sound, which is preceded by a small tightening sensation in your chest, abdomen or throat. While some people have four hiccups in a minute, there are many who get 60 hiccups a minute. Usually, they are not a cause for concern. Still, if a person has prolonged hiccups for more than 48 hours, it is a cause of worry and requires medical attention.
