Our expert says:
This is not a stupid question. It sounds to me as if you may have a heart arrythmia (irregular rythm). It could be due to bruising of the heart muscle due to your accident. Please ask your GP to do an ECG to check. Next time this happens, please feel your pulse (at your wrist or in your neck next to your windpipe) to feel if there are any missing beats. If needed, you may need to wear a 24 hour holter ECG to pick up the irregularity.
