UK woman suffered 'non-stop' hiccups for 11 years

London, February 19 : A UK woman has baffled the doctor by suffering from constant hiccups for more than a decade.


Amanda Corby from Hull, who had a vicious bout of hiccups up to five times a day for 11 years, had hiccups every two seconds in episodes that can last up to 10 minutes at a time, the Daily star reported.

The 46-year-old woman said that she tried scaring herself and sipped water, but nothing worked for her and she even tried hypnotherapy, which failed to give her a long-term relief.

Corby added that the doctors have found no cure to her problem and she will have to live with it.

The world record for hiccups is still held by Charles Osborne, who endured 68 years of regular hiccuping between 1922 and 1990.
