Our expert says:
Hiccups are caused by irritation of the diaphragm and you may have a small hiatus hernia that triggers these attacks. Sometimes the type of food/size of the bite triggers it - dry foods and biggish food pieces are common culprits, so if you tend to eat fast,this could be a cause.
Swollen eyes, fingers and legs need to be further examined - ask your doctor to test your liver and kidney functions, listen to your heart and check if you have enough protein in your blood.
Varicose veins are often hereditary - this can be treated by an operation to remove the offending vein (surgeons do it)
