In brief: Cardiac condition

If you have a significant pause in the electrical activity of the heart, you will feel very dizzy and fatigued and might have other symptoms like shortness of breath.
A significant heart pause needs to be determined by your primary care physician through cardiac testing.

In brief: Skips, dizzy, faint

If its a short skip, you may notice the "return beat" afterwards.
If it lats a few seconds, you may feel dizzy. If it's longer (how much longer depends upon the person) you may faint.
