I am a 15-year-old female who has had intractable hiccups. I don't really remember when they started, but three years ago is my best guess. I never felt the need to figure out what was making me hiccup every half hour or so because I only get one or two at a time, but they hurt. They are loud and annoying in the middle of class when I randomly go "HIICCC!"
They are pretty sharp hiccups and I recently did some research and found out why. I have acid reflux and was diagnosed with it and prescribed medicine for it about a year ago. I get heartburn a lot. My assumption is that acid reflux is the cause. This has been so frustrating for me because I've been trying to change my eating habits and diet both to try and figure out what is causing these hiccups. I'm in band and choir and sing on my own a lot, and I am embarassed to get hiccups in the middle of a song. Can someone please give me some helpful advice as of to why I am getting these incessant hiccups and what I can do to get rid of them? Thank you much!
