    If I lay on my back for a few minutes, then I can turn onto my side with no problems.  When my heart is skipping beats, I also feel like I need to cough.  Is this normal or should I be concerned.  I a a female, 57 years old.  I am a 911 dispatcher, work nights. I sleep from 6:30 am to about 1:30 to 2:00p.
