The recent hiccoughs can be just because of over treatment. All this medicines and analgesics cause a lot of acidity and hence the nerve gets inflamed causing hiccoughs.
Also if your father has a mild hiatus hernia then it can also cause the same symtoms however to diagnose that youll have to get a endoscopy done
