We've all had the hiccups, but it usually goes away quickly.
Don't tell that to a man living in Louisville, who says as of the end of November it will be one year he's been suffering with hiccups and the situation is getting worse.
Milton Betts says he's tried dozens of prescriptions, almost every folk remedy, and even went to the Mayo Clinic for nerve block surgery.
"I believe in God and I trust God, but I tell my wife sometimes if I got to be like this the rest of my life I'd just rather go on 'cause it's very frustrating,” Betts said.
Milton says he's also willing to under-go experimental treatment if it could help.
