Why do we get hiccups?

Report as

The muscles in our chest and stomach spasm creating hiccups. I usually just hold my breath as long as I can and it goes away.

You get hiccups when something irritates your diaphragm, making it spasm. And the cure for everyone is different, because what brings hiccups in the first place for everyone is different.

My science teacher told it was caused when the diaphragm is stuck up in your chest, so you have to stand up straight against a wall, suck in as much air as you can, hold your breath and force as much air as possible down your throat. Do this 2-3 times for best results. It's scientifically proven to work if you do it right.
