My dad had a stroke on November 16, 2012. He was ok still we took him to Vellore, India for a thorough checkup. He just came back from there on 19th of this month. He was ok but suddenly he started to have hiccups from yesterday again. He had this right after his stroke for few days, then it was gone. But from yesterday he's having this,even when he is sleeping. Please suggest us what to do.

Unfortunately I'm in your same position..infact I wrote here some times ago.My father had in june an ischemic stroke in the area of the middle cerebral artery. 10 days after it a persistent hiccup started. He did a chest ct scan and a gastroscopy and there is nothing relevant on them. This hiccup often starts after meals, with an eructation, and sometimes he stops 1 or 2 hours after he falls asleep. Normally it lasts from 2 to 4/8 days. Doctors suggested us baclofen, promazine, omeprazole and domperidone.
And now the doctor here suggested me to gave him: valproid acid or gabapentin. Does my situation is similar to yours?
