I do feel my heart skipped a beat or pump harder, Is that dangerous ?

When I was born, I had a hole in the heart and they said to go to doctor when I grow older. I never did get checked for that but I never had a heart attack or anything like that. Sometimes I do feel my heart skipped a beat or pump harder, it s a strange feeling. Is that dangerous or anything ?

do you know exactly where the hole was? there are holes that didnt close during the organogenesis, but they'll close after birth. for example: foramen ovale. i sometimes experience the same feeling with my heart. but it depends on the situation. are you feeling those with when you are relax or not? go check with the cardiologist if it starting too bother you
