      My dad had GB last year. He seems to be fully recovered. He now has cronic hiccups….he has had them for the last 10 days. The doctor is exploring gallstones but we don’t think it is that. Has anyone heard of hiccups related to GB?

      I also experience hiccups (not chronic), probably from the onset and recovery from GBS last year. All of sudden it starts anytime during day and last for 1 or 2 minutes. I do not know whether it has any relation with GBS.

      I haven’t had the hiccups since GBS. In fact I can’t remember the last time I did have them.

      i think it is a possibility to have hiccups for a period of time due to the diaphram muscles being out of sync. the diaphram is made up of 2 muscles, which work together to make you breathe. if one muscle isn’t getting the proper current to tell it to move or if it gets out of sync with the other side you have hiccups. when i get them for longer then a few mins i use my biofeedback techniques and get my muscles working together again and the hiccups are gone. you just have to use your mind to try to picture the muscles and calm them down. it sounds weird, but thats what i do.:)
