Why do we hiccup?

Post by Chesa ^.~ on Wed May 02, 2012 5:32 pm

My hiccups are killing me!! I've been hiccuping all day (with pauses in between)!

I've heard everything from being hungry to being cold... and various "treatments" of it as well...

So, I was curious as to what causes it and whether the "treatments" have some scientific basis...
