In brief: Skipped beats cause

The kind of Sx u describe.
Tho they can b annoying if there is no evidence of any heart disease,they are not serious.Am not sure from ur description how many are ventricular or atrial. The total number of extra beats is low, good.Tho I think it is unlikely u shud b sure u don't have hyperthyroidism.Try to avoid stimulants; caffeine, smoking & xcessive alcohol to < Sx. If Sx 2 bad meds may help.
