Just tonight I started having an irregular heartbeat. I have no other symptoms. I am not weak or dizzy or lightheaded. It has been going on and off for about five hours.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I understand your concerns. Your symptoms are most likely due to heart arrhythmia most likely AFib (atrial fibrillation), the most common arrhythmia which causes palpitations and may be completely asymptomatic. The other possible causes include SVT (supraventricular tachycardia) or other heart arrhythmias.
Please provide me with more details in order to reach the appropriate diagnosis. Is it the first time you have this symptom? Do you have any health problem (thyroid or heart)? My advice is to perform ECG (electrocardiography) and send me the report. Measure your blood pressure.
