In brief: Sudden death
Certain causes of sudden death can run in families.
Understanding the cause of your uncle's sudden death would be important in defining the significance of your irregular heart beats. You should seek an evaluation from your physician and or local cardiologist. Bring with you information regarding your uncle's heart condition and whether other family members have similar conditions.
