Hi well come to HCM
There are all the chances that you may be having ventricular premature beats
which is giving you the feeling.This you can confirm by recording your pulse even
where you will find missing pulse.It may be benign not of much significance if very
ocassional.But to see your doctor is must to rule out major cause for it. Thanks

Maybe. What you shouldn't do is ignore it. You need to see a doctor and have a cardiac workup done. MAKE YOUR APPOINTMENT NOW!!!
