Teen Suffers Three Weeks Of Hiccups

The 15-year-old Floridian can't stop hiccuping.

For more than three weeks, Jennifer has hiccuped close to 50 times a minute when she's awake. And she's got the doctors stumped.

Blood tests, a CAT scan and an MRI haven't helped. Neither has holding her breath, breathing into a paper bag or drinking out of the wrong side of a glass.

And, yes, people have tried to scare the heck out of her.

Jennifer's mom, Rachel Robidoux, recently turned to the St. Petersburg Times for help. She's hoping a member of the public might have a solution to her daughter's case of the chronic hiccups.
