The hiccups are back.
During her second day back at school since her hiccups began in January, Jennifer Mee had to leave class again.She had them for 5 weeks the last time. If nothing else, doctors are learning an awful lot about hiccups from her (especially what doesn't help stop them).
Mee's nose started to bleed Thursday morning, and then the hiccups from which she has suffered for more than a month returned.
Mee's mother, Rachel Robidoux, said her daughter is upset, discouraged and in pain.
''I'm at my wit's end,'' Robidoux said.
Mee returned to St. Petersburg's Northeast High School on Wednesday, and the 15-year-old ninth-grader hiccuped only twice.
But on Thursday, the hiccups returned with almost the same intensity they had several weeks earlier.
