Doctor: Thanks for consulting ATD.Skipped or irregular heart beat is called arrhythmia. There are different types of it and t here exist many reasons for that. Most common causes are conductive system disorders of heart, ischemic and valvular heart disease, electrolyte imbalance, thyroid disorders, anxiety disorders, etc. In your case, it seems anxiety is the triggering factor for this. Try to reason yourself about panic or anxiety episodes. Consult psychiatrist for assistance in this regard. Consult physician for further evaluation to find the correct cause for this. Hope the topic is clear now.Have a nice day.
