If not, you have to contact your pcp! also, the hiccups may just be a temporary phenomena, as you've set up the reflex to create that inadvertently. Again, unless it's disabling and affecting you quality of life, get some rest! ...Read more
Pulsing head + dizzy/lightheaded when lie down. Ears clogged, pressure in eyes/face, nasal voice often. Allergies. Cervical issues. What specialist?
