Sinus Arrythmia: You had 6EKGs and 24 hour Holter and no abnormality was found, You probably are feeling skip beats which are not really skipped beats ,If you feel your pulse and take a long breath and hold it for few seconds you will feel your pulse slowing and may feel like you skipped a beat , This is called Sinus Artythmia .Heart beat originates in Sinus Node and rate can change inspiration and expiration

I agree, if you continue to worry you may ask for an event monitor which can track your heart over the period of a month. If that is negative you may want to seek a consult for anxiety . Good luck.
