A boozy night out seems to have proven too costly for a man from Ireland's County Roscommon as it has left him with constant hiccups over the last two years with no cure in sight.
Daniel Clavin said that the hiccups had taken over his life and he did not know if he will ever get rid of them, the Daily Star reported.
The 38-year-old said that he had tried just about everything i.e. all the old wives cures but he could not stop and he spent most nights in a different room from his wife so that she was not disturbed.
Clavin was recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) and believes that the hiccups could be a symptom of the disease.
Clavin said that he was told that he has got a high burden of the disease and this was the only symptom so far, therefore, he could not complain.
