I get them at least twice a day. Sometimes more or less. Can someone explain a skipped beat to me though? I am not positive that is what I have but here is what it feels like to me.
Usally I am just walking or something and it feels like something in my chest "drops" and I jump and feel weird for a couple seconds/minutes. Today I got a stress test and when I was done later on I got two skipped beats. The first one happened when I was laying down... it brought me up fast. The second was when I was sitting... I leaned forward and felt the "drop" and it got a hot/warm feeling and I felt weird or sickish for a second. Sometimes I wonder if it is a skipped beat or chest spasm. Since sometimes it is worse when I move a cetian way. I hope it isn't a spasm... but my muscles and joints hurt/twitch alot lately.
I worry that they might mess up something but since my doc told me they are normal I try not to think about it. They are annoying though... they make you stop and go "another skipped beat!" ugh. I do wonder sometimes but I guess that's normal since they feel so weird. I heard sometimes acid reflux can make your heart skip and I have alot of growling/buring/sick feelings in my chest so that might increase mine. I hape it isn't something else.

I acquired Hypothyroidism about 3 years ago. Ever since then my heart has skipped occassionally -- actually more like pauses(a few times per month I suppose), and tends to run on the fast side, 80's to 90's. Not sure if it's related to my thyroid problem or not.
I use to have them every month or less but they have gotten worse. I don't think it is anything to worry about... my pulse stays near/around 100 all the time unless I am resting well or sleeping.
