Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You are probably having missed beats (arrhythmia)
Irregular heart beats need to be DOCUMENTED by ElectroCardioGram (EKG).
HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring) is done to analyse and plan for further management, if a routine ECG does not show,
TMT (Treadmill exercise ECG) / LABORATORY work-up / even need Electro Physiological Studies– may be necessary.
The treating doctor may suggest them depending on need, based on his assessment of the situation.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
