For the past 3 months I have been experiencing some sensations like a thump in my chest. The closest I notice one to the next is about 7 minutes and often times I have one and then don't notice another for a number of hours. A GP told me that they were most likely extra heart beats that were benign. For the last month I have been experiencing episodes of lightheadedness-at times I feel for a fleeting second that I might fall over. It goes away also. There is no chest pain involved. Would these symptoms warrant a check by a cardiologist. Thank you for your help.
