violent chronic hiccups

My daughter is 15 years old, she has suffered from hiccups for nearly 3 years. Drs decided it was a tic and prescribed various medication for antacid before referring to a specialist. She has now been seeing the specialist for nearly a year with no change other than the hiccups are now more aggressive, more frequent, more painful, more tiring, more embarrassing and therefore starting to become a disability. Her sleep pattern is now effected and it causes her breathing to become very erratic during big episodes. She has tried various different medications with awful side effects but no effects on the hiccup, she has had an endoscopy which only showed a slight inflamation (inflammation) of the stomach, and is now on another ineffective medication. Please please please if anyone has found or heard of a cure or a relief from these symptoms, please let me know, I am desperate to help my daughter as this condition is starting to damage her self confidence, friendships and self esteem. Thank you.
