A woman from North Idaho is relieved after finally getting rid of a bad case of hiccups.

Mary Kay Keener had the hiccups for nine months. She couldn't eat, sleep, or even talk without the constant cadence of hiccups. Mary Kay lost 15 pounds before finally getting rid of them.

Mary Kay tried everything; she went to 10 different doctors and specialists and took more than a dozen pills. It wasn't until her boss moved her to the front of the store where she worked, away from the farm feed that her hiccups started to go away.

It turns out Mary Kay is allergic to farm feed. Her hiccups started the same time the feed was put next to the video department where she worked. That agitated her allergies causing the hiccups. Her manager moved her to the front of the store without knowing the cause of her hiccups and Mary Kay was cured.
