It may be entirely normal for your heart rate to vary slightly with inspiration, breath holding, and expiration. If you feel that your heart is racing, fluttering, or skipping beats regularly, it may be worthwhile to visit your doctor for further evaluation. Also, if you feel lightheaded, dizzy, or have episodes of fainting, these symptoms should be futher investigated further.
