Physiological reflexes

Does anybody here know why I just started hiccoughing? Or rather, since I know what the trigger is - what causes me to hiccough when encountering a particularly hot sauce (in this instance Dave's Insanity)?

Oh, and it's about time pepper sauce manufacturers came up with a common heat scale - and published it on their bottles. A rough SHU range would be fine, I'm only asking for an approximation.
