To the girl in Florida who’s had the hiccups for three weeks:

I’ve seen first-hand with my father what you’re going through. His happened around this time every year because he’d eat the jelly hearts for Valentine’s day. My mom would make him sleep on the couch (or he did that so she could sleep) since they lasted for at least two weeks. We found out that it’s probably an allergic reation of some type to red food dye when he ate BBQ sauce that caused the same thing. His advice:

Last time I had them I gagged myself. They went away for a short time at first, but the duration got longer and longer until they stopped.

(I’m fairly sure this was said tongue-in-cheek…)
