St. Petersburg, Fla. (AP) After a break of just a couple of weeks, a 15-year-old Florida girl who hiccuped her way through part of January and all of February is doing it again.

Jennifer Mee began hiccuping again yesterday morning after a nose bleed. It was only her second day back at school since her first bout of hiccups stopped February 28th. During the earlier bout, Mee hiccuped close to 50 times each waking minute for more than five weeks.

Her mother says she's at her ``wits end.''

During her first bout of hiccups, Mee saw an infectious disease specialist, a neurologist, a chiropractor, a hypnotist and an acupuncturist. She tried everything from all the old remedies to a patented device that's supposed to stop hiccups.
