Hiccups result from spasms of the diaphragm and sometimes occur with no obvious cause. These spasms force a rapid intake of air, causing the flap of skin at the top of the windpipe to close quickly. This rapid movement is the source of the noise. Hiccups that do not go away can be a sign of an underlying medical condition.
