Hiccuping forever

#1
This subject is derived from my Grandfather, who after consuming ale (he drinks mild) will sneeze constantly. His record is 33 sneezes or something like that, spanning half an hour.
I usually end up hiccuping, which is extremely annoying. I've had half-hours worth of that before.

Anyway. If you were hiccuping none-stop, how long do you think it would take before you became seriously affected by it. And How?

Please discuss the same, in regards to sneezing. If you were sneezing none-stop how long would it take for that to affect you seriously. And How?

Do you think you could tolerate this for a long time? Which would be worse?

Thanks.

For me:
*I was getting pretty irritated after half an hour of hiccups. I think another half-hour and I'd have been very worried. Another hour and I'd have been pulling my hair out. I hate doctors but three hours of this and I'd have been paying the scary bastard a visit.
*As for sneezing, I think I could tolerate that for longer. But it would still drive me nuts eventually.

You?

Good question!
In my humble opinion tho, I think sneezing would be worse......you are splashing germs around, whereas with hiccups, they are simply...inside you~
I would be bothered by both if they continued for hours.......they say some people hiccup for weeks or months, and learn to live with it, I don't see how ~LoL~
After a day or two of either, I would be seeking help :)

I have a case of permanent hiccups. I get one every few hours or so. They don't really bother me but people often ask me... what was that:confused:?

After 24 hours I'd think about leaping off a tall building. I hate hiccups. If it lasted years, woooo, I'd probably go batshit crazy and be locked up.

I actually sneeze when I get in the sun. Just a couple of times. It's called the photic sneeze reflex. I also get hiccups when I eat anything spicy, even if it's way below my tolerance bar, or don't even notice. Heh, crazy genes. I don't know how long I could tolerate sneezing or coughing if it went on and on and on, but it would definitely fall into the category of "not long at all". Plus after a few hours I'd be hitting every medicinal/holistic/homeopathic/acupunctural/dental/physio/etc clinic I could find. I'd try everything up to and including swallowing worms while hung upside down by my ankles while a voodoo priest chants while decapitating a pig. I'd stick with the idea that 'something has to work'. It's my only salvation at that point. P.S.: Sorry if the post is clumped in a mess. It won't stay neatly organized, and I'll try to fix that later.

Eww-ish, I think I'd just rather put up with the hiccups!
