This has plagued me for years, and i don't understand why. If I eat a hearty, chewy piece of bread, say a whole grain, dense bread that is fairly dry without butter, I get the hiccups almost IMMEDIATELY after the first few bites.
What does that have to do with eating? I thought the hiccups were a temporary spasm of the diaphragm as a result of irregular breathing. If it's worth noting, the hiccups I get after eating bread are really...violent, for lack of a better term. They physically hurt, are very loud and a very sharp upward spasm in my rib cage, not your cutesy little "tipsy ingenue" hiccups.
