Rhythm not Blockage: Palpitations or skipped beats can be caused by irritable areas in the heart that disrupt normal electrical conduction. While coronary artery blockage can cause this, it certainly can occur in the absence of blockage.

Palpitations: Palpitations have many causes from anxiety through anatomic and physiologic abnormalities. The feeling of bounding usually relates to the volume of blood pumped with each palpitation. There is no simple single answer for the question. If you're bothered by the feeling should consult a dr. To see if the problem can be clarified.
