Mitral Valve variations on the skips.

I've had these skips for many years. And, what I've noticed is I can go for weeks with little or none. Then, one day I get them all day long. This doesn't really bother me a lot since I've learned not to freak out over them. But still, I'm wondering if seasonal changes can cause this to happen.

Violet, it is hard to know what exactly is going on without knowing your age, full history, etc.  "Skips" can be palpitations or dropped beats that may be reflective of an arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm).  I recommend that you get an EKG and discuss with your primary care physician.  Seasonal changes do not affect arrhythmias.
