What causes skipped heart beats and feeling of pass out?

i recently was on vacation and had a very light breakfast and didn't eat lunch. i had a strong cup of coffee and within 15 minutes it felt like my heart skipped or had a spasm that caused me to feel like I was going to pass out. It didn't last long but then I had an anxiety attack. I have been diagnosed with anxiety and am on meds.
