Is skipped or miss heartbeat the same as extrasystole. Is this miss heartbeat serious & it normally does not required any treatment at all.

Different: What feels like a skip to you is often an extrasystole. If an ECG or monitor actually shows a missed or dropped beat, this is different.

Hi. I had a sharp medium pain close to left nipper and sharp sound in right ear, all for secounds.Few weeks bf doctor said mpv and extrasystole.
