User :   Hello?
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hey doc, got a quick question for you.
Doctor :   Go ahead....
User :   I'm a 21 year old male, and I've had the hiccups pretty badly tonight. After a particularly deep one, I had a sharp chest pain directly beneath my sternum. Since then, the pain has subsided, but it comes and goes. I have been having episodes that last maybe 5-15 seconds, then they stop for 10+ minutes.
User :   Should I be worried?
Doctor :   Get the X ray of chest and abdonen
User :   So I should go to my GP tomorrow?
User :   (It's currently 3 am where I live)
