Doctor Answers (2) on Behaviour problem
Gastric reflux disease is usually the cause of hiccups. There are other medical conditions which needs ruling out before considering any functional or psychological cause. A detailed history and examination would help to understand the nature of the problem and to determine appropriate treatment. Please first consult a physician if you haven't already done so. If all medical conditions have be ruled out, then please consult a psychiatrist to evaluate for psychogenic hiccups. Regards
