My heart has skipped half a beat for years. It started when I was pregnant with my daughter 23 years ago and didn't go away after so my doc sent me to a heart doc and they did a EKG and told me I was fine. Of course it didn't do it at all when they did the EKG but one day my regular doctor heard it do it and said it was nothing to worry about it was just skipping a half beat. When I went to the hospital ER with left shoulder blade pain and shortness of breath in 2005 my heart was skipping alot and I asked and they said some people just have that and it's nothing to worry about. I could see and hear it do it on the EKG. My doc has been inside my heart 3x and all the valves and everything are fine. I just have a stent to my LAD which has remained open since it was put in 1/4/05. Make sure you ask though it helped put my mind at ease. Barb

Also chronic pain from a moped accident 11/9/07 which left me with back, hand, knee and foot problems.
