My heart is constantly skipping a beat. It beats twice, skip, beat again for about 4-7 times, skip, beat three, skip etc. What may cause this?

They sensation of a skipped or miss beat is called PAC' s and PVC' s and it is very common. But it is always a good idea to ask your Doctor to do a resting ECG and maybe refer you to a Cardiologist for an Echo of your heart, just to make sure that all your valves are in working as they should.
