I'm a 27 yr old female and I've been hiccupping for the past seven years every day off and on all day. Sometimes it's just one other times many. They have made me stop in my tracks and concentrate on breathing due to it hurting. It's a pain dealing with it really.

I have had hiccups now for 2-days on and off. Every time I cough, laugh, talk loud, or eat. I get them back. I wake up in the night from and with them. I tried holding my breath, drinking water slow and fast, taking antacids, eating raw ginger, and tablespoon of sugar.Nothing works.

My hiccups are not food or drink related at all. I could be just sitting or laying and BOOM, hiccups. It's usually a brief episode, but hiccups nonetheless. Deep breaths to expand the diaphragm works for me.

I have had them all day long with a few breaks. I have tried all the home remedies but as soon as I cough, they come back.

I do not have chronic hiccups I was just wondering why when I start to eat or drink I get one big hiccup that really hurts from my neck to the top portion of my chest. It is so painful that it is difficult to catch my breath at first. Then afterwards my chest hurts for hours...I finally took Tylenol and that helped for a short time.

I get hiccups sometimes several times a day. I usually take my breath in as far as I can, plug my nose and inhale one more "inch". Holding the breath through what would have been 1 or 2 hiccups. This almost always works for me, but I plan on trying the tongue pull next time.
