In brief: Yes
You need to be evaluated with cardiac studies, starting with an keg and possibly a prolonged ekg called a holter monitor.
Causes of irregular heart beat can be as simple as a vitamin or mineral deficiency , thyroid problems, or can be signs of cardiac problems. Consulting your physician is best not only for determining the cause, but also for treating it appropriately.
