I wouldn't worry. If it is twice the normal heart rate then I would worry. If it gets to 100 beats per sec, you should see a doctor. I don't think it is life threatening but you should check it out if it gets worse. Also,caffeine can cause these heart arrhythmias so if you drink a lot, you might want to cut down a bit.
