My friend squeezed my chest really hard, and I felt my heart stop for a second, and then do an extremely hard beat next. Wondered if this was normal?

Sure: The heart responds to physical stimuli like any other muscle but has a pacemaker (PM) or internal clock in the upper chambers. If the signal from the PM is interrupted, the lower chambers (ventricles) will fire late (called an escape rhythm). Physical and emotional triggers can also cause a premature ventricular contraction (PVC). Both are felt as hard beats with a pause before or after to resynch ...Read more
