In brief: Irregular heartbeat

An irregular pulse is usually due to irregular heartbeat which in turn is often due to benign variation in electrical activity of the heart.
This is particularly true if not accompanied by other cardiac symptoms, progressive nature or exertional symptoms. However, an ekg is appropriate and required if any other symptoms are present.
