It is probably heart palpitations. No real big deal but you need to go to your doctor just to make sure. And to make sure you don't need to take something for this. Mine was doing that and it turned out to be Mitro Valve Prolapse.(sorry for any misspellings) Which still isn't life threatening but I feel better since I started taking the medication.

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.
