OKLAHOMA CITY, OK -- A Marine veteran who survived the war in Afghanistan is asking for help to cure a chronic case of hiccups.

Ronn Powell suddenly came down with the hiccups on February 24th.

He lives in Oklahoma City and has seen several specialists but they were unable to diagnose the problem.

Powell and his fiance even turned to the internet.

He has tried home remedies like putting sugar under his tongue and sucking on a lemon.  Nothing has worked.

Powell says he hasn't eaten or slept in days and is desperate for a cure.
