Abstract

Hiccups are defined as involuntary spasms of the diaphragm which causes the glottis to force shut resulting in the act of hiccups. In this study, research will be conducted on myself and my condition of chronic hiccups. To many doctor's knowledge, their studies have come back inconclusive on to what this condition is. There will be a series of research conducted to determine if I can find any new information for a diagnosis of these unknown hiccups. If I induce myself in different environmental factors, like food, my hiccups will increase. The way to utilize the hiccups to determine the results of the different environmental factors were to record the amount of times I hiccuped for a week while I was at home and for another week while I was at school. The induced environmental factors are food, stress and exercise. Studies and experiments will be conducted in each of these factors to see if one may cause hiccups to increase more than others. Studies will also be conducted to see if my diagnosis of Celiac disease and GERD also have an impact on the condition. Ideally the results will conclude as the environmental factors will result in an increase of hiccups. The data will be analysed through the number of hiccups performed by each factor. In conclusion, the inducement of environmental factors cause the hiccups to increase. The findings of this study can result in a improvement to my overall health. Keywords: Hiccups, Chronic, GERD, Celiac Disease.
