My heart skips every third beat, specially when lying/sleeping. My resting rate is about 56bpm, pressure 105/65, age 38. What could be cause?

In brief: Heart skip

Everyone's heart skips.
They're more noticeable when you're in a quiet, non-distracted place...like in bed, especially when you lie left side down. If it's especially troublesome, a cardiac evaluation can be done. Meanwhile, avoid caffeine, nicotine, stimulants, excess fatigue, and, if possible, stress.
