ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Jennifer Mee isn't hiccuping -- and that, in itself, is news.
The 15-year-old Florida girl drew national attention as she tried a variety of doctors and remedies to end her more-than five-week battle with the hiccups.
Wednesday, they just stopped on their own.
She tells The St. Petersburg Times that her nose is burning and her throat hurts, but otherwise, she's feeling better than she has in weeks.
The teen's problem started in January. She was hiccuping close to 50 times a minute and says they only stopped when she was sleeping.
She'd tried home remedies like sipping pickle juice and holding her breath. She'd also gone to a variety of specialists, including a hypnotist and an acupuncturist.
She wound up on NBC's "Today" show two weeks ago after her mother, desperate for help, contacted the media.
