Anxiety, have skipped heart beat. History of heart attack and a stent. Worrisome?

Hi, i seem to have noticed a skip or missed beat in my pulse as i workout regularly walking and lots of tai chi. This should not seem a concern but i have had a heart attack 7 yrs ago and suffered anxiety as well, but i have been symptom free since my stent . Just curious as to why i can feel this when i take my pulse thanks

The probable cause for this may be a conduction defect in your heart, which cause you to skip or miss a beat. This can happen secondarily to your heart attack that occurred 7 years ago.

Please get a holter monitoring of your heart done to detect the pathology more specifically.

Wish you good health.
