Question
In the morning I take approximately 20 pills..more often than not I get a bad case of the hiccups. This morning I could not get rid of them and ended up throwing up water, mucus and my pills...This has happened on more than one occasion but this morning was the worst ever.Is this the sign of something more serious like a hernia?
