How long have you had hiccups often? How many times a day do you experience hiccups? Are there other complaints such as abdominal pain, discomfort in the stomach and throat, chest pain, palpitations?
Hiccups are generally normal for most people. Hiccups are diaphragmatic muscle contractions that occur suddenly. This can be triggered by food, the influence of temperature and the surrounding environment. However, a small portion of hiccups can occur due to a certain disease such as Gastroesophageal reflux / GERD, thyroid gland disorders, disorders of the airways, diaphragmatic hernias, disruption of the body's electrolyte balance, cancer, kidney failure, tumors and disorders of the nervous system. Of course, in addition to hiccups, other clinically meaningful findings will be found if other more serious illnesses are indicated.
Normal hiccups can subside on their own without the need for any handling. However, some ways such as holding your breath for a while and consuming fluids can help suppress hiccups. If hiccups really interfere with your activities and last more than 3 hours in a row, then consult directly with your nearest doctor for examination and selection of appropriate management. Some medicines such as anti-psychotic and anticonvulsant drugs can be useful for suppressing hiccups that are temporary and not taken routinely.
Thus the information that I can convey, hopefully helps
