Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you.

NO, trapped gas DOES NOT cause feeling of skipped beats.

But I have seen many patients with hiatal hernia and gastroesophageal reflux disease complaining of abnormal heart beat.

I would suggest you to have an EKG done for evaluating your problem.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
