What causes skipped heart beats?

I HAVE HAD A PALPITATION FOR MANY YEARS WITH NO SIDE EFFECTS HOWEVER 3 WEEKS AGO MY HEART STOPPED BEATING FOR ABOUT 7 TO 8 SECONDS. i STARTED TO BLACK OUT WHEN MY HEART HIT VERY HARD AND STARTING BEATING AT VERY HIGH RATE. THE DR SAYS I HAVE HIGH BLOOD PREESURE AND TACHYCARDIA. I BELIEVE THE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE BUT MY HEART STOPPING IS ANOTHER PROBLEM. EVEN ON THE BETA BLOCKER IT STOPS. ANY HELP WOULD BE GREAT

Hello. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Your doctor must have told you. Skipped heart beat, Interestingly, both skipped beats and extra beats or palpitations typically have the same cause: the heart's regular rhythm is interrupted by a premature or early beat. ... Premature beats are common in healthy people of all ages. Caffeine, alcohol, stress, and fatigue may cause PACs or PVCs to occur more frequently.
Hope I have answered your query. You can contact me for treatment options. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Regards,
Dr. K. V. Anand
