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
