This is Dr. David
hiccups can come from irritation of the phrenic nerve of the diaphram
this can come from distention of the stomach or from fluid outside of the lungs or other causes.
if the hiccups continue and don't go away, you should ask your doctor for chlorpromazine medication
which can be given 25mg three times a day to help cure hiccups.
try to eat smaller meals and see if that helps.
let me know if you have other questions.
