Hiccups

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone 

After my first post a month ago we found out my Husband has Nsclc.  He received 5 days of radiotherapy that significantly reduced the pain to his shoulder with very little side effects. Last week ( 2 weeks later) Chemo started for the first time. He’s having immunotherapy, pemetrexed and carboplatin. He keeps getting hiccups anyone else had this and any remedies to reduce although not bothering him that much just very annoying. It’s day 3 after treatment and apart from feeling fatigued all is ok.

Hi Debby. 

I use an acupressure point to stop hiccups and have found it more effective than others I've tried.  It's also supposed to help with nausea and vomiting but I can't vouch for that. I didn't know about it when I had chemo years ago for a prior non-lung cancer. Here's a video from Sloan Kettering that shows the point. Let me know if it works for him
