In brief: Maybe

Anything involving your heart is worth checking out.
Consider thyroid or adrenal diseases, dehydration, medications, chemical imbalances. Too much caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, drugs, stress, and not enough sleep are other big causes. Sometimes there is a "wiring" problem in your heart that makes it go out of rhythm. See your md.
