I have skipped beats, too. It turned out that they were nothing to worry about. I had to wear this heart monitoring device for a month and whenever I had skipped beats, I'd send a recording of what my heart did over the phone. It was sort of cool, actually. And when the person at the other end told me I was fine, it was reassuring. But I was getting them many times a day back then. Now I'm maybe getting one every few days. It is more likely to happen when my back is twisted in a certain position, so I think that perhaps I'm pinching a nerve
or something. Anyway, your skips beats are probably nothing to worry about, but since for you it's a relatively new thing, you should probably visit the doctor. He's put a stethoscope to you and then do a quick EKG. Then I bet he'll say your fine and send you home, but he might want to do the monitor thing. The monitor looks just like a pager that you wear around your waste. When I wore mine, I could just pull my sweater over it. You can also wear it around your neck. You could even just tell people you are wearing a heart monitor because you have skipped heart beats. You never know who's out there worried about the same problem as you, and talking to them about it might actually help them.
