Severe Headaches With Continuous Hiccups?
Hello, I want to ask why my father continued to hiccup and has been going on for 2 days and was accompanied by severe headaches. Already to the doctor but only given the usual medication and even his headache getting worse. What causes headaches and hiccups?
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
Hiccups / hiccups / singultus is a condition of the emergence of sound due to sudden closure of the vocal cords due to contraction of the diaphragm or the muscle separating the abdomen and chest cavity that play a role in breathing. There are several things that can trigger hiccups, including:
Soft drinks, alcohol, heat
Eat too much and fast
Temperature changes suddenly, or eat food that is too hot or cold
In the hiccup condition that has lasted for 2 days, it needs special attention because it is included in the category of persistent hiccups. Further examination and management is needed by a doctor. For the management of hiccups / hiccups themselves can be done in several ways other than treatment, including:
Hold your breath and count 1-10 slowly or to the maximum point.
Breathe in the bag
These maneuvers have not been scientifically proven, but can be done alone at home, and can help to reduce hiccups. To deal with this problem, it is recommended to see a doctor for further examination and management.
