blood pressure monitor/irregular heartbeat detection

Hi, I am a 28 yr. old female with no known heart problems. My father has a bp monitor and I have used it a few times and when I use it the Irregular Heartbeat sign comes up and it starts beeping. Does anyone know how accurate these are? Should I be concerned, or no? The irregular heartbeat sign has not come up for anyone else, yet comes up for me evertime I use it. Every once in awhile I get a chest pain in my upper left chest that gets worse when breathing, so I would think it isn't heart related. Anyway, thank you.

Don't panic. Occasional rhythm irregualrities are quite common and yes, if they happen while using a digital BP tester the results go farschmeltd (good Jewish word! )

Try some daily magnesium supplementation and see if that helps.
