Summary about Hiccups in English

Hiccups are an involuntary contraction of the diaphragm the muscles separating the chest from the abdomen and playing an important role in breathing. After each contraction, the sudden closing of the vocal cords occurs, creating a characteristic "hic" sound. Hiccups can be caused by a large meal, alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages, or sudden excitement. In some cases, hiccups may indicate a basic health-related condition. In most cases, hiccups usually last only a few minutes. In rare cases, hiccups can last for several months. This can lead to weight loss and fatigue.
