Teeth grinding can be a sign of stomach/abdomminal pain. What you are describing as sneezing and hiccuping ... could that be gagging? This could be serious and if it were my ferret I would definately take him/her to a vet who has experience with ferrets.
Good luck,

Not a vet, but had a ferret that had similar symptoms. this ferret had/has heliobacter. Teeth grinding is a classic symptom of this. Stress and incorrect food aggravate it.
