YES: I hope that you are using a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) like Nexium or Prilosec, both now available oTC. for the hiccups,a simple way to stop them is to rapidly take very small sips of warm water through a glass covered with cheesecloth or a thin linen hand towel or handkerchief. 4 months is too long. See a GI specialist asap.
