No, I have not had them for long periods.
My son used to get them for about an hour.

I think it can mean you have a problem but cannot remember what it was -possibly connected to reflux?

I knew a man once who had them for almost 24 hours -it was awful!
by Finy
Oh my God, 24 hours is a very long time ! It could be acid reflux . Spicy food does that too. But if it is for 24 hours, I would ask a doctor.

Yes, they were terrible. I tried a couple of things like chilled water and holding pencil in your mouth, to calm them down. I know the second one sounds funny , LOL.

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!!
I have.

I got my son to help me...as I did not stop for over 20 mins.
Did cause concern, but he told me to drink water, slow my breathing etc...and they went soon after.
I think maybe once or twice, but not in a very long time.
Yes and I get very loud hiccups so embarrassing and annoying!

Yes, I had them for about an hour before, it is such a nuisance!
No I haven't
I get hiccups every now and then - last maybe 10/20 mins. They drive me mad when I do get them

When I get the hiccups, I'm always afraid they will never stop. Apparently there was a man who had them for 68 years. Torture.

Yes, when I have very cold fizzy drinks.Never had them for over an hour though.
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
Nat_c, I used to watch the Mike Walsh as well, Loved it. That goes way back, doesn't it? To the '70/'80's?

No, I haven't had the hiccups that want on for a long time. Only about 3 or 4 hiccups at a time, but not for many years now.
