Are hiccups a sign of growth?

Tags: , , 8 Comments

Hiccups are an involuntary spasm of the diaphragm. Hiccups occur when the diaphragm involuntarily contracts causing a person to take a quick breath of air into the lungs. They are not a sign of growth. Any comments?

    Does hiccups mean your growing. no, hiccups are a twitch in the muscles around the throat. if you get hiccups more often than other people, that's not weird,

  2. Loreen says:

    No hiccups mean your diaphragm is irritated. Your hight depends mostly on genetics like if your parents are short then you will most likely end up short. A way to make yourself grow taller is a good combination of diet and exercise. If vegetables make you gag just eat a lot of other healthy stuff. Also when your parents go grocery shopping tell them to look for stuff that has more vitamins in it like instead of buying regular orange juice buy orange juice with calcium and vitamin d. Hope this helps.
