Panic attack: You are self medicating panic attacks with alcohol. Alcohol helps as a tranquilizer but is a terrible drug to treat these problems since it depletes serotonin (making you depressed over time) and is too short acting so you feel worse when it wears off. See a psychiatrist who can advise on proper rx of panic disorder. ...Read more

Probably gastritis. : If alcohol makes it worse it's probably GI and not cardiac. Try taking some Pepcid 20mg twice a day for about 6 weeks, and lay off the booze for a while. Hope this helps. ...Read more

You need evaluation: I have no idea what the pain is, or why drinking alcohol makes it better, but you need to talk to your doctor. Hypertension in a 22 year old man is distinctly abnormal, and if your doctor has not tested you for more unusual causes of hypertension (coarctation of the aorta, primary hyperaldosteronism, renal artery stenosis and others), you should be tested for these. Talk to him about drinking also. ...Read more
