Something to be concerned about?
Hi... Okay... So at least three times a week, I will have about anywhere from twenty seconds to three hours of an irregular heartbeat. Instead of a thump...thump...thump... I'll get something like a thu-thu-thump like something isn't closing correctly... kind of makes me want to use a car analogy when turning the key in the ignition and a funny noise happens several times before turning the key one last time and it finally starts up... And when this happens, I'll get slightly dizzy and my face will (as it has been noted by others) get very pale and they said the pupils in my eyes do this funny thing when this happens...

So... yeah, I know its something I SHOULD be concerned about... but does anyone have any suggestions...? Money is really tight and I need to have a better reason than me "thinking" my heart is irregular before I can see a doctor.

Thank you

Sounds like pvcs or pacs which are benign unless u have underlying heart disease.  I would try and schedule appointment with dr for a holter monitor

The arrhythmia is probably PVC's that, as pointed out in previous posting, is  usually benign.  
However the lightheadedness and paleness are indications of insufficient cardiac output...that is why you should see a doctor.
