“Short bouts of hiccups are common and harmless. Persistent hiccups (lasting for more than 48 hours) are rare. However, they need medical assessment because there may be an underlying medical condition causing the hiccups.”
“Hiccups are involuntary contractions of the diaphragm — the muscle that separates your chest from your abdomen and plays an important role in breathing.”
