When should I contact my doctor for hiccups?
Most cases of hiccups resolve themselves in a short period of time and are rarely a medical emergency. See your doctor if hiccups last more than three hours, or if they disturb your eating or sleeping habits.
Seek medical attention if hiccups are associated with
shortness of breath,
coughing up blood,
or feeling as if your throat is going to close up.
