I have GERD and that tends to make me hiccup alot more than other people. I take care of an older disabled friend and when he had them ( an he does have a really bad case of GERD), he was taking pain medicine and it seem to make them worse for him. His doctor recommended Thorazine and that is a really powerful psych drug. He said no thanks and waited for them to go away. He had them for several weeks non stop. When he ran out of pain meds, his finally went away. Has your husband been diagnosed with GERD? If he has, try treating that for a few days and see what happens. He needs to eat bland food,no tomatoes, onions, peppers or acidy food to help reduce the acid in his stomach. GERD is Gastrointestinal Reflux Disease. You can get over the counter medicine called Prilosec OTC (Over The Counter) or the store brand Omeperazole and see if that helps any.
