Hiccups are no fun; they're annoying, loud, and they hurt your belly. Bouts of them usually last for just a few minutes, but that's not the case for Chris Sands – he's been suffering from hiccups for 15 years. Sands has tried various cures such as hypnosis and yoga, as well as 100 different variations of drinking water, but nothing has cured his problem. He has them as often as every two seconds, and they disrupt his sleep. Even brain and chest scans haven't helped determine the causes of his decade-and-half hiccup attack. His personal theory is that acid reflux condition has damaged the valve in his stomach and Sands hopes surgery can help.
Maybe he hasn't tried everything, though. I'm sure many of you have unique ways to cure hiccups, so please share them in the comment section below.
