I don't have a irregular heart beat but I feel like it skips a beat here and there. I'm 23?

In brief: I'm sure it does

Everyone's heart skips beats.
Unless you pay attention, you won't feel the vast majority. Normal hearts beat 60, 000 to 100, 000 times a day. Some of those are "mis-fires". Caffeine, fatigue, stress, nicotine all increase this number. Skipped beats do not mean you have heart disease.
