Persistent Hiccups After an Epidural Steroid Injection Successfully Treated With Baclofen: A Case Report

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Persistent hiccups are an established adverse reaction to epidural steroid injections. Although oral baclofen has been used to treat hiccups in various clinical settings, none of the previously reported studies that used baclofen were related to hiccups occurring after spinal injections/procedures. We report a case of a man who developed persistent hiccups after a transforaminal epidural steroid injection that was treated successfully with oral baclofen. Level of Evidence: V
