A 13-year-old girl has been hiccupping constantly for 10 weeks and even does it in her sleep.

Emily Marsh, from England, 13, says she hiccups every two seconds. Her normal life and sleep are so disrupted by the hiccups, she even takes time off from school.

Doctors say her condition is extremely rare.

March has undergone a litany of tests and treatments for her condition, including hypnosis, prescription drugs and natural remedies, but nothing has worked so far. "I have tried everything," said Marsh.
