What causes hiccups?

Hiccups are sudden, automatic withdrawals of the stomach muscle. As the muscle contracts over and again, the opening between the vocal strings snaps close to check the inflow of air and makes the hiccup sound. Bothering of the nerves that reach out from the neck to the chest can cause hiccups
