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..
