Lisa Graves has had the hiccups for 12 years and counting. She says they began when she was pregnant with her first child and never went away. This poor lady averages 20-30 a day, but sometimes more and can even be nonstop! Lisa’s hiccups have a unique sound. They almost sound fake but they’re not. Doctors say the hiccups are actually a side effect of a minor stoke. She says she never felt a thing and this is the only lasting effect from it.
