Brief Answer:
Your answer is as follows-

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic for your query,
Have gone through your details and i appreciate your concerns.

Nerve damage or irritation are one of the most common cause of hiccups. The most common cause of long-term hiccups is damage to or irritation of the vagus nerves or phrenic nerves, which serve the diaphragm muscle.As soon as you ate something your abdomen gets distended hence pressing against diaphragm.This increases the pressure on phrenic nerves and irritates them causing hiccups.

Some of the suggestion are-
Hold your breath.
Put a pinch of sugar under your tongue.
Ask someone to scare you.
Gargle with ice water.
Pull out your tongue (this supposedly stimulates the “vagus nerve" and stops spasms of the diaphragm).
Breathe into a paper bag.

They are usually very effective in treating hiccups.

Certain foods and beverages can trigger hiccups. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC), hot or spicy foods, such as hot peppers, miso and curry and hot or spicy liquids are particularly known to cause hiccups.So try to avoid them.Try ruling out any particular food which increases your problem and avoid it.

Medications suggested-
Chlorpromazine is the most thoroughly studied medication and appears to be the drug of choice in many reports. Regimens in the range of 25-50 mg intravenously (IV) or intramuscularly (IM) are effective in 80% of cases. To prevent or minimize hypotension caused by this agent, preloading the patient with 500-1000 mL of IV fluid is advised.

Haloperidol, is effective in doses of 2-5 mg.

Metoclopramide has been used successfully in a dosage of 10 mg every 8 hours.There are evidences of the usefulness of metoclopramide against intractable hiccups. 34 patients received either 10 mg of metoclopramide or placebo three times per day for 15 days. The efficacy of metoclopramide with regard to cessation or improvement of hiccups was greater in the metoclopramide group than in the placebo group, no serious adverse effects were noted.
Discuss them with your gastroenterolgist.
