  • I work in a medical office and not long ago a woman called saying her husband had had the hiccups for several days and they had tried everything with no luck. The doctor prescribed a relaxant or a nerve pill if I remember right for him...can look when get to work to be sure and it stopped his. Must have helped for no more complaints nor calls and he has been in the office since several times.

  • Hello! Here is a good free tip for trying to cure hiccups beyond sugar, peanut butter, having someone jump out of the bushes or holding your breath.... apply pressure to your Vegas nerve-- above your eyebrow.... or to you temples.... I strange mystery as to the mechanics, but has cured several prolong'd cases! Take extra special care!@

  • I would have my Liver checked b/c that is a symptom of Liver disease! :confused: My husband had hiccups and we found out that he has Liver failure. I don't mean when someone has hiccups just once but many times a week.Shirley

  • I've had the hiccups for about 6 years now. My hiccups are very random, not painful, weird sounding hiccups like "hurrrp" "yuuulk" "heeeeelk" etc. I've never really noticed how many times I do it a day. from what I have noticed maybe like 10 times day. When I have "normal" hiccups, my chest hurts so so soooo much! After my family and a few of my friends persisted that I should go get them checked out, I did it. I only went to a walk-in clinic though. The doctor had told me about something he had read in the newspaper, "This boy had the hiccups for 3 months as the ones you described. And it turns out he had a hair leaning against his ear drum." So they flushed my ears out but I stiiiiiiillll get them...Maybe all of you should at least try that.A hair leaning against an ear drum causing hiccups is beyond me, but it obviously worked for someone!!!!-Courtney
