To have a heart attack you do not have to have chest pain. can you have a heart attack while just feeling skipped beats as the only symptom?
Unlikely: Hi MoeA645, Yes, many people who have heart attacks do not suffer the typical symptoms of chest pain, difficulty breathing, nausea & sweating. Still, it's very unlikely feeling just a few skipped beats means you are having a heart attack. You may have something called palpitations, which are often nothing to worry about.
