Cardiologist, Interventional 's  Response
generally when you have respiratory infection or astham and recieving treatment for it, its usual to have few ectopic beats, which will be noticed as skipped beats or missed beats. But considering your other symtoms such as fluttering, weakness, it would be adivisble to have echocardiogram done and if felt necessary by treating physician than a holter monitoring to be considered.
