Post Irregular Heart Beats

I'm a 38 year old male who had irregular heart beats in July 2002. It occurred after exercising. I went to the hospital for a stress test and everything came back normal. After a month of light exercise my heart rate was completey normal and my exercising continued until May 2003. I started exercising again in Aug 2003 and the irregular heart beats started up again lasting another 3 weeks. Today they are completely gone. Does any one know why this happens? Sometimes I think my heart is out of shape like any other muscle and exercising too fast too soon causes these irregular beats for the short period of time.

A stress test won't always pick up a problem. A holter monitor worn while you are away from the docs office and while you are exercising might be helpful. Skipped beats are probably not as worrisome as chest pain or shortness of breath would be.
