Increased pulse rate, nausea, fluttering sensation. On thyroid medication. Treatment?

Hi, I just went out for a walk and about five minutes in my heart started beating funny. Kind of fast and fluttery. When it stopped I got hot and felt a bit nauseous...for a moment. I proceeded to walk again and after a few minutes it did it again. I take thyroid meds, however, I have not been consistent with taking them.
