I constantly get the hiccups?

I hiccup up to at least six times a day. I’m not talking about actual hiccups that last like ten minutes and then go away with a drink of water, I’m talking about one singular hiccup at least six times a day that hurts so much. I can feel it coming, and it creates a sharp pain in my chest, and is accompanied with a loud hiccup noise. I can feel them coming (like I said) but can do nothing to stop it. It’s happened for as long as I can remember. Does anyone have any idea what it could be and how to stop them? They’re becoming an issue in my everyday life.
