In brief: Irreg heart beat

hello ~ yes you should be concerned but not worried.
The vast majority of irreg heart beats are benign atrial ectopic beats but some can be of more concern. Please visit your doc and have a resting and stress ECG and then a HOLTER test is necessary. This will identify the nature of the irregularity, and treatment if necessary. Thanks
