YES anxiety can change the rhythm of your heart. Racing can be gas in the stomach, or a response to a thought. It is normal for the skipping to happen with anxiety, it gets your attention, however, it doesn't mean much nor affect the heart.

If you can distract yourself, with any tried and true enjoyment, ( IE youtube funny animal videos or cute kid stuff, or turn on dog or cat TV on youtube;, once your mind is off your fears the body follows.

get a weighted blanket of some sort and or get on the couch and back up to it while on your side and feel the security of the couch. turn from one side to the other and one side will feel better. the weight of a heavy blanket and the security of the back of the couch will comfort you.

how are you doing now, anyway?

I get heart palpitations from my anxiety,I can’t stand it but I try and not let it get to me. It does take time to get to the place where you can tell yourself you are fine and it’s all due to anxiety. I know it’s hard
