heart flutter
About once or twice a day my heart will flutter of skip a beat. When my heart does flutter or skip a beat it lasts for like a second and goes away. Very rarely will it last longer and if it dose it goes away in about 10 seconds.I just want to know if this is really serious? I dont feel light headed or dizzy. When i feel it it just scares me a little.

Have you had an evaluation?  It doesn't sound serious to me, but you might want to mention it to your doctor.  I have had them (skipped beats) pvc's or pac's,on and off for 40 years, and until my bouts with Afib (hard to ignore because I have a rapid ventricular reaction with it) it has not harmed my health, except to cause panic and anxiety.  I take Atenolol, Xanax and now I am on Coumadin.
