Causes Of Hiccups?
Good afternoon .. does laughing out loud can cause hiccups? thanks.
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
Hiccup or singultus is a sound like "hik" due to diaphragm contraction that causes the vocal cords to close spontaneously. Diaphragms are muscle membranes that separate the chest cavity from the stomach. Causes of diaphragm contraction include:
1. Soft drinks, alcoholic and hot.
2. Spicy food.
3. Too much or fast when eating
5. Changes in temperature.
6. Changes in emotions, such as excessive happiness and excessive stress.
7. And others.
In addition, laughing out loud can also cause hiccups. Hiccups can occur at any age, from infants to the elderly. Hiccups last in a few minutes. However, if you experience hiccups for a long time and often, you should consult with a neurologist. Prolonged and frequent hiccups are also a symptom of certain diseases, so they must be examined and then treated.
What you can do to stop hiccups immediately is to bend forward, pull your knees to your chest, hold your breath briefly, breathe in a paper bag, swallow sugar, bite acid and taste vinegar.
Thus hopefully useful.
