I've heard of putting your head between your legs and putting a paper bag from the grocery store over your head. I never tried them and can't say if they work or not. I've never had hiccups for more than a few minutes and THAT cn be very annoying. Can't imagine putting up with them for three days! Poor kid.

no remedies- except for a teaspon of sugar folllowed by sucking of a lemon- it used to work for me. My in laws knew a man from their church that had the hiccups for years- the poor man was miserable- there was nothing the dr could do for him. After so many years with no help he finally gave up and killed himself. I hate it when I get them! I can't even imagine having them for that long - no sleep- can't eat without hicupping, how horrible!
