Brief Answer: needs further evaluation Detailed Answer: Hello, I have read your query. You say that you are having an irregular heart beat. Is it what you are feeling or a doctor has diagnosed the same in you? If it is what you are feeling, then it needs further evaluation in the form of 24 hrs holter monitoring to confirm the diagnosis. Some forms of irregular heart beats like sinus tachycardia or sinus bradycardia are not XXXXXXX Even some arrhythmia that occur occasionally do not cause any harm to the heart. Now, we need to know what kind of irregular heart beat you are facing. So, please get the investigation done as suggested. The ones which are XXXXXXX are ventricular tachycardia and Atrial fibrillation. It seems like you have more of a conduction defect or bundle branch block. This is not XXXXXXX To be sure of your condition, you need to be evaluated as said above, and a electrocardiography, if required. Take care!

Brief Answer: occasional irregular heartbeat is not XXXXXXX Detailed Answer: Hello, What you are feeling is not XXXXXXX You have been examined by your doctor with a stethoscope and everything is fine. In my view, you should watch over your irregular heart beat for a while. Please observe it for 3 to 4 weeks more. If it is persistent or occurs very often, then you may consult a Cardiologist for the 24 hr holter monitoring. For now, nothing XXXXXXX or alarming to your health. Regards,
