Brief Answer: Non worrisome Detailed Answer: Hi, When it was confirmed by a general doctor with a stethescope I would not be worried about skipped beats. So you should not have a heart beat disorder. Heart beats can skip if you are anxious too just check if something is bothering you lately. Try to get some good sleep for next couple of days you should not feel the missed beat again. Hope this answers.
