In brief: Unrelated

Everybody's heart skips beats.
Avoid nicotine, caffeine, and alcohol. Reduce stress and get plenty of sleep. If you're still bothered, a 24 hour recording of your heart and and echo (plus some routine lab work) would be indicated. Swelling is a completely unrelated problem. If you're female, monthly hormonal changes may be the culprit.
