Heart & Cardiology/skipped beats

Question
Dear doctor:

David Richardson (maxed out right now) answered my question well yesterday 11/15.  I'm the 61 year old female with skipped heartbeats.  He said it was normal but I didn't include in my description, the fact that I'm having the issue on a very regular basis, that is, almost every day. Can I still consider this normal?  I've experienced skipped heartbeats but never on a regular basis.

Thank you so much.

Answer
Hi Rochelle,
I don't know anything about your case, or what yesterday's answer was. If your heart function is OK and you don't have coronary artery disease, then you don't have to worry, but remember I don't know what arrhythmia you have:
