I am 32 years old, active and healthy but today when I drank a monster energy drink I instantly got chest pain and have had it for a few hours. Should I go to the er?

I vote YES: It's hard to tell what is causing the chest pain (may or may not be the heart). One's own doctor, if available, can offer advice and may want to do an EKG to see how the heart is doing (presuming the pain is mild). If no personal doctor is available, then the ER would be a place to go. If the chest pain is moderate or severe, calling 911 right away would be wise (in case there is heart problem) ...Read more

Panic/anxiety: From the question you certainly had an episode of anxiousness or a panic attack. Common with such episodes is heart palpitations, and in the middle of feeling this way it may be misconstrued as an arrhythmia. The hot ambient temperature probably did not cause this, but it certainly can exacerbate the situation. Drinking a big slug of caffeine is not a good way to help just after an episode.

I recently stopped drinking energy drinks to try to be healthier and went back to drinking coffee, but every since I stopped drinking them I have been having really sharp chest pains. I eat very helthy and don't know why this is happening.?

Palpitations?: Depending on how much coffee you're drinking now, the caffeine could be having an effect on you. It also depends on your age, risk factors for heart disease, family history, and whether you are having other symptoms suggesting a heart issue. You may need an electrocardiogram or other studies to check the heart. I would first wean off caffeine for a while to see if the pains continue. ...Read more
