Heart Palpitations & skipping beats

Im going to the doctor for it, but thought I would ask anyways for an idea. I haven t had this problem before until lately but now when I drink beverages with sugar my heart skips beats. And it did it pretty much non-stop when I was drinking cool-aid so I changed my drinking habits to cranberry juice and various other drinks ,and it happened alot less. But it was still there until I started drinking morning joy orange juice and it didnt happen once all day. But as soon as I go back to drinking something else it happens though, even vitamin water,so I was just wondering why is this happening. Is there something in Morning Joy Orange Juice that calms the heart? And why now would this be happening to me Im 22 years old and haven t had this problem before.

The most common arrhythmias are premature atrial contractions (PACs) or ventricular contractions (PVCs), which usually are harmless.

Yes, I have been to a doctor and am going again very soon, I just wanted to get some personal insight. I m a healthy 22 year old male and ive been having palpitations for a couple years but all tests show nothing wrong. But lately im concerned because I m having what seems like skipped beats except i feel them right below my rib cage where my aorta is located. Has anyone else ever gotten this palpitation feeling in their stomach? trust me its not gas or just pain, it 100% coincides with my heart beat and feels the same as my heart palpitations. Thanks.

my blood pressure registered this evening at 101/66. Is this too low? I have also had an influx of heart fluttering (feelings of a skipped beat) for the past month. I had a normal echo with mild right tricuspid regurgitation and mild mitral valve regurgitation . I have also had 2 menstral cycles in 30 days, can hormones cause the fluttering sensation ?

I keep getting heart palpitations, very frequently, day and night. When I get them I also get a cheast pain, sense of breathlessness and feel dizzy and have to sit down. Im really worried, my doctors away and not back for a couple of weeks, Do you think it is anything serious?
