Hi Ann,
My hubby gets them but they seem to be related to eating sweet things? Love Gem

Ann,
Almost every morning before I take my Baclofen and sometimes when close to Baclofen feeding time

I'm not on Baclofen, but I get them 2-3x day. I wonder if it is a muscle spasm?

Janie, Chris would get random hiccups all the time. Sometimes just a single one, sometimes a run of them, but he would hiccup at some point most days from around when his breathing began to decline.

I always felt they were like diaphragm fasciculations ...

Yep....couple times a day. Don't last long. Thinking they are spasm related.

Read this thread and found it amusing, until last two days when I've gotten hiccups twice
each day.

'Glad we're in this together - this site keeps me at least somewhat sane.

I'm similar to Tillie. Get them multiple times per day. Especially when eating or drinking. Sometimes only one hiccup......sometimes more. Thinking diaphragm spasm. Will likely not report as a symptom as don't feel like fighting with doc about if I really get them or not.

Port we never brought it up with the doctors either. It was just another part of it all ...
