Hic !: Yes Mam, beside discomfort and unpredictability of hick ,hick it means your Phrenic Nerve is playing some role in it. It is said one Pope had such hiccups, now I wonder, if for similar reasons He got relief from Thorazine (chlorpromazine). probably fell asleep. for temporary relief try " Brach's " candy. It however will be way much better, were you to give up this drug and Run, Baby Run.. Endorphines !!
