    What Causes Hiccups? What Cures Hiccups?

    What is the exact cause for hiccups and what is a good home remedy?

    Hiccups are basically bronchial spasms. In babies, they can be caused by over stimulation.  Luckily they are not dangerous. Taking deep breaths and trying to relax might help. My husband swears by swallowing a spoon full of peanut butter for a natural hiccup remedy.

    Hiccups are a spasming of the diaphragm.  At times it can get upset with food, or swallowing air - anything really.  Holding your breath and pressing trying to press the air down on your upper abdomen cures mine 100% of the time.

    My home remedy is completely nuts.  I don't know how or why it works, but it does most of the time.  Out of nowhere, ask the person what they had for lunch.  My daughter gets hiccups for hours at a time.  I asked what she had for lunch.  She said I don't know, why?  A minute later I asked if she still had hiccups.  OMG no, you're weird mom.

    Taking codeine causes hiccups for me! Every time I eat if I have taken pain killers containing codeine I get hiccups for ages!
