I have been experiencing sudden incidents of hiccups or sneezing which are infrequent but sudden and extremely violent. Would appreciate input from anyone from anyone who has had similar episodes. Information from the net is scanty but does recognize a correlation between hiccups and PD. In my experiences the incidents seem to occur entirely at random, during the day or the middle of the night during sleep. This would seem to be a cause for concern if either should occur while eating or drinking due to the sudden large intake of air which precedes it and which could cause food to move from the mouth or throat into the lungs. This could cause aspiration Pneumonia or difficulty swallowing which are among the leading causes of death among PD patients. Any thoughts on this?
