HI ...
hiccups will occur sometimes  because of a disturbance to the nerve pathways from the brain to the muscles involved. This explains why hiccups may occur with temperature changes or emotional situations. It is also the reason that a sudden shock can sometimes abolish an attack

Hiccups are bursts of inspiratory (breathing in) activity. The muscles we use when we take in a breath are the intercostal muscles situated between the ribs, and the diaphragm - a sheet of muscle below the lungs. Most simple cases of hiccups come after eating or drinking too much or too quickly.

Most simple cases of hiccups come after eating or drinking too much or too quickly. The stomach becomes distended and irritates it. This will cause diaphragm to contract as it does when we breathe in.

"Hiccups are sudden,involuntary contraction of the diaphragm muscle.As the muscle contracts repeatedly the opening b/w the vocal cords snaps shuts to check the inflow of air and make the hiccup sound.Irritation of the nerves that extends from the neck to the chest cause hiccupsI think you all understood♥
