Hiccups from coughing???

This just seems really odd to me, but I very often get hiccups simply from coughing. In fact my coughs are often like this- *cough-hic* and if I'm not careful, the hiccups will start from that.

What would possibly cause that and is there any way to prevent it?

Re: Hiccups from coughing???

I don't why but that happens to me often as well! I'm talking a total stab in the dark but it probably has something to do with your breathing being interrupted with coughing and then your diaphragm getting off track. Probably not much help but at least you know you aren't alone!

Re: Hiccups from coughing???

Hiccups are still a medical mystery. Scientists still don't know for sure what causes them. There are a couple of theories. One is that your CO2 level gets out of whack. Try taking slow, deep breaths with a long exhalation after coughing (and in between coughs, if possible) and see if it helps.
