Singultophobia (from singulto, Latin for "hiccup"), also known as myoclunusdiagphragmaphobia after the episode Fear of Hiccups (Myoclunusdiagphragmaphobia) of the TV series The Adventures of Figaro Pho, is the fear of hiccups. The fear is often triggered due to annoyance of hiccupping repeatedly. They would try to avoid hiccupping, but it is often involuntary. If the sufferer hiccups, they may dread or even bursts of panic with each hiccup with rapid breathing.
