Thanks for writing in. I am a qualified and certified cardiologist and I read your mail with diligence.
Normal heart has an episodic premature ventricular or atrial contraction. It is some people who are more perceptive perceive this as palpitation
, thumbing sensation or missing beat. As far as skipping a beat is concerned. See, our heart beats for about 100,000 times a day (72x60x24) so 1% beats to be out of rhythm that include missed beats is perfectly normal occurrence. It is not correct give them a label of arrhythmia
yourself. Please ask your doctor, you will be thoroughly examined and if needed investigated accordingly. If needed a Holter examination will be done which will document number of runs of these premature beats. Then one is labelled to have arrhythmia and treatment instituted. For present I am concerned with computer generated unconfirmed report of antero septal myocardial infarction
in a 28 year old person. I believe it be interpretation of EKG computer of an aberrant conducted premature atrial beat but without symptoms unless your doctor says so or I see the EKG it is not believable. We can take both the issues after you had shown yourself to a doctor on rather urgent basis. Good Luck.
With Best Wishes
