Man suffers from hiccups for four years

Published måndag 24 november 2014 kl 12.29

A man from northern Sweden who has had hiccups for the last four years says he is desperate for help to cure him of his condition.

Speaking to the local Norrbottens Kuriren newspaper, 65 year old Ingemar Löfgren says the hiccups are stopping him from eating, drinking and sleeping, and says he has lost 25 kilos since the problem started.

He has had medical treatment, including several operations, but nothing has helped so far.

"If anyone has anything that can help, get in touch. This is a cry for help", he told Norrbottens Kuriren, "I've gone from being an active person to nothing. I can't do a thing."
