Having hiccups for a few minutes is awful enough, but one man, after a night out drinking beer, has now had hiccups for 14 months, says the Daily Star.
37-year-old Daniel averages one hiccup every seven seconds and sleeps in a room separate from his wife and his two children so that they can get some sleep. Experts have no idea what is wrong with him and Daniel says he will be getting an MRI soon.
“I’ve no idea why they started – I’d had more to drink than I had for some time but it was nothing out of the ordinary,” said Daniel. “They’ve taken over my life. I woke up with them one morning after a stag do and I’ve had them ever since. I’ve no idea why they started – I’d had more to drink than I had for some time but it was nothing out of the ordinary. I’ve tried all manner of supposed cures but nothing’s worked.”
Screw the SAW movies and Paranormal Activity. The next horror film should be about hiccuping non-stop. That shizz is the worst.
