Possibly extra beats: A simple electrocardiogram might help ease your mind. The most common cause is benign extra beats. Theoretically it could be something else, but this is one of the best uses for an ekg.

What can be a cause for irregular heart beat?

Afib/MAT/PVC's/PAC's: Ectopic beats (pac's and pvc's) can produce irregular rhythms. Multiple distinct ectopic atrial foci can produce an irregularly irregular rhythm (wandering atrial pacemaker versus multifocal atrial tachycardia). The extreme of an infinite number of reentrant atrial conduction loops all with different timing can lead to atrial fibrillation.

Irregular heartbeat: You will have palpitations, or a feeling like a butterfly in your chest. How bad it is depends on the type of irregular heartbeat. They range from completely innocuous to fairly dangerous. Most are nothing to worry about. Hope this helps!
