Almost four years ago I got a sudden extremely bad headache out of nowhere. The next day I started having random painful hiccups.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I get these random hiccups that are extremely painful and loud. They are not normal hiccups. I have also started having severe headaches. I have seen a PCP who cannot find anything. I have seen a GI Dr who did an endoscopy and widened my esophagus. He did x-rays and an MRI. I also had a swallow test done. The GI Dr and an esophagus expert said it is not GI and my MRI is normal. I saw a Neurologist who said he thinks it could be seizures. He did a 30 minute EEG but I didn't hiccup during the test. We have tried anti seizure meds, antacids, and several other meds and nothing worked or it made me into a zombie who couldn't function.
