Yes, it is normal for the human heart to occasionally experience missed beats. However, this should not occur very often or cause symptoms. If this is the case, then you should discuss this with your doctor during your next visit. However, if you develop chest pain, shortness of breath, several missed beats over a short period of time, dizziness/lightheadness, or other worrisome symptoms, see you doctor immediately.

I have skipped heart beats. Went to ER a year ago and then followed up with cardiologist who did echo And EKG which were normal. Still having constant skipped beats all day and sometimes night. Will this do damage to my heart? Tonight I feel a flutter that makes me want to cough.
My heart will beat 4 or 6 beats and then skip a beat. Then sometimes it goes 14 or twenty times and skips a beat?? So what is going on??? I don t feel ill or like I am getting aheart attack or do I have any symphtoms of any kind. Life seems to be normal. YYYY@YYYY
a few times a day, it seems like my heart skips a beat. i can tell whenever this happens because after it skips the beat, it is always followed by a heavy pound right after. my heart then resumes its normal pulse. what could this be? heart murmur? anything dangerous? i m a 17 yr old male in an overall healthy condition.
