Cardiac arrhythmia: Your description is suggestive of cardiac arrhythmia due to premature beats. It is not unusual for this to be accompanied by a cough. I am assuming that your tests included and examination and an electrocardiogram and that these were normal. It is not uncommon for premature beats not to be detected during a routine examination. I would advise you to report this to your physician and get his advice
