NO! An irregularity in your heart beat is dangerous and not caused by hiccups (or sneezing). A hiccup is an involuntary spasm of your diaphragm.

I have started feeling one strong heart beat and then it beats normal for a while. I have been nauseated and have had the hiccups a lot lately too. Just trying to find out if something is serious could be happening. I have diabetes - not under control very well and high blood pressure--I just started taking my medication for this after not taking it for a while because I didn t have my prescription filled.

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
