Please can someone help me. I have been getting feeling as if my heart is skipping a beat. I have been to a cardiologist for about 25 years now and he told me I have mitral valve prolapse and I get extra beats but is it possible to get them for a couple of days in a row. Is there anyone else here that gets these extra beats and what can I do . Please can someone give me some reassurance. Can anxiety cause these skipping or extra heart beats.
