According to The Sun, Marsh and her family have said they "are willing to try anything" to keep her from hiccuping. Doctors have given Emily an MRI and ultrasound scan, while her family has opted for traditional home remedies like holding her breath and drinking vinegar.

Pope Pius XII famously died in 1958 after long periods of hiccups associated with his gastritis.
