Eating raw carrots gives me hiccups

Eating carrot sticks gives me hiccups. I though it was just a weird thing with me but just noticed my daughter is also afflicted with this odd reaction to raw carrots.

Does this happen to anyone else? Or is it just my wired family?

Does anyone else have any weird reactions to food?

(Light hearted - I know from personal experience how dangerous allergic reactions can be!)

I get hiccups rating raw apples.

My ds is slightly allergic to them.

My nephew used to hiccup at first to milk, then after a few months he began gasping for air and got throat swelling. Doctor told us at the time that many food allergies start with hiccups, and as kids get more exposure to the food it can get worse (or not).

I get hiccups eating sponge cake.

I don't get hiccups from anything, but I do throw up if I drink black or green tea on an empty stomach.

Ooh - thanks that's interesting nutty and megle - maybe it is an allergy thing after all. That genuinely hadn't occurred to me - I thought I was just an oddity!
