When I was child I had hiccups for 4 days and nights which was so exhausting and actually painful after a while! My parents tried every old wive's tale remedy they could muster up from family and friends,all to no avail.In the end I was taken to our family doctor who admitted this was VERY rare to have them continue for so long that I had to stay home from school!! I cannot frecall what medication he ordered,but it worked,thank heavens!!! My poor parents were also at their wits end!!
Yes for over 10 month's, had x-rays, and endoscopy, ultrasounds and blood test, but the specialists could never figure out why, it hurt. Now i only hiccup really loud and i can feel it coming in my chest it hurts, but only ever one hiccup and nearly everyday, but thankfully not continually anymore.
I haven't had hiccups for ages. I got them when I was younger. I watched the mike Walsh show and he had Dr James write on the show. He had a cure for hiccups and it was 1tssp of sugar on your tongue and chew slowly. It worked a treat although I think my son use to pretend a lot to get a taste of it
