    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Hi. I was just generally wondering does anyone on here find they get hiccups a lot more than normal people? I've been noticing that I've been getting them a lot, much to the annoyance of my sister. Get them up to twice a day, 4 days a week, and they last for up to 15 minutes a time. Just wonderign if anyone else has experienced this, and if you have, did it get worse after following the gluten-free diet for a while? Thanks for any replies - I'm just intrigued...

Yep--and what triggers it for me is getting up from sitting or lying down. I don't know why, but I do seem to get them more often than normal. It does happen more often since going gluten-free. Strange :huh:

I get hiccups all the time. Usually, when I start getting a lot of hiccuping episodes close together it means that I'm going to get stomach muscle spasms. These are extraordinarily painful so hiccups worry me...

Since I still don't know what causes the spasms (I get them stressed, not stressed, acidic food or no acidic food, gluten or not) so I don't know what causes the hiccups. There seems to be no rhyme or reason. :blink:

nope, I don't get them particularly more often than other people - every few months.

I've always gotten hiccups a lot more than normal people. And when I get them I get them for a really long time and even once they go away they'll keep coming back throughout the day.

I actually thought that it was hereditary because my dad has told me that his grandfather used to have the same problem and one time they even had to bring him to the hospital because he couldn't stop hiccuping for I think it was like 2 days straight.

I used to get them all the time and they would be violent and hurt, but seem to be better since gluten-free. My kids' GI says they can be a sign of reflux.

I used to get them a lot, I haven't had an episode since I went gluten-free. The only thing that helped was drinking hot water to relax the spasms. I had not realized how long it had been since I had them till I saw this post! They used to be at least every other day.

Before going gluten free I very rarely got hiccups, however now I get them maybe once a week or at least every other week. The strange this is that I get them while I'm asleep and it wakes me and my boyfriend up in the middle of the night! :(

I had the same experiance as ravenwoodglass!! I used to get them ALL the time. Several times a week and several times within the same day. They stopped once I went off the gluten and I didnt have them for about 5 months.

Just the other day I got another endoscopy and I have had hiccups every day since :(:(:(. I am very upset about this because it used to be a real problem for me and now it seems to have returned. I can only hope they go away again as I am still off gluten!
