Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Irregular heart beats with light headed is due to abnormalities of heart rhythm know as cardiac arrhythmia.

You need check up with a cardiologist.

They will perform tests like ECG, 2D Echo, and Holter monitoring to detect the abnormality of your heart rhythm.

Consult the doctor for physical examination and for investigations.

Hope I have answered your query.
