Skipping heartbeats, heart beats longer then goes back normal.What could be this?

My heart has been like almost skipping beats but its not, its almost like the beat lasts longer than it should then goes back to normal. I'm not sure what the medical term for it is, I've never hear of it happening, anyway I also feel that I have costochondritis. I'm not certain and I haven't had a chance to get it checked out yet but I've been doing research and it makes sense with my symptoms. You should also know I work out a lot, lifting and cardio.

Cardiologist Dr. Anantharamakrishnan's  Response
Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You are probably having missed beats - may be sinus arrhythmia?
You are not likely to have Coronary Artery Disease - in view of normal effort tolerance - 'cardio'
You have not stated your age, gender, personal habits, family history or co-morbidities

THE FIRST STEP IS TO SEE A CARDIOLOGIST / The event needs to be DOCUMENTED by ElectroCardioGram (EKG). / Standard ECG records the electrical activity of the heart, for a few seconds. It can detect the arrhythmia occurring during that time only. If the episode occurs randomly or precipitated by a specific activity like exercise, one needs Holter or event monitor.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
