Go to the ER: a lot of benign medical condition can cause the heart pouding the urge to cough is your body way to try to convert the heart rate to a slower rate, you need to see a doctor or need to go to the ER right away if it is happening now. many condition could become serious and life threatening so do not ignore it and see your doctor.
