Has anyone heard that a person seriously ill will have intermittent hiccuping?

Thank you

Hello and welcome to WebMD,

No, I've not heard that but no one here (including me) is a doctor. If you are at all concerned about something which has occurred or about a loved one, ask your doctor.

I had the hiccups for 18 months straight, it was not a sign of death for me but it was a sign of anxiety and panic attacks. I do hope the hiccups have resolved themselves without the loss of a life.
