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.

I HAVE HEART PAPLPATATIONS PRIMARILY IN THE EVENING WHERE I CAN FEEL MY HEART BEATING BUT WITH NO PAIN. SOMETIMES FEELS LIKE IT SKIPS A BEAT. I CAN ALSO FEEL IT WHEN IM WORKING OUT. I HAVE NEVER HAD THESE BEFORE UNTIL I STARTED THYROID MEDS A YEAR AGO.

I have been having heart palpitations for a few weeks. Last week my dentist confirmed an infection and I need 2 teeth extracted. I have been on antibiotics for a week still feel like I am fighting something. I continue having irregular heart beats. My husband, a paramedic, felt my heart beats and felt my heart when it skipped. He called it afib. Could my irregular beats and mouth infection be related?
