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

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

Left sided chest pain hurts to press on , quite localized but worse when drinking alcohol? Could it still be cardiac? Have had normal ECG and echo.

Left sided chest pain hurts to press on , quite localized but worse when drinking alcohol? Could it still be cardiac? Have had normal ECG and echo.

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

I was streching after drinking water and now im having chest pains what could it be ?

Rib sublux?: The drinking water should not have anything to do with the pain, unless you had reflux but this would have been a temporary discomfort. Assuming the pain is continuing you may have slightly dispaced a rib and/or developed inflammation at your rib/sternum joint. Consider seeing a medical doctor or chiropractor for this. ...Read more

Chest pains not nl: Difficult to determine why you are having chest pains upon drinking beverages. So, it's best to consult your physician, or cardiologist if this continues, as it's not normal to have this happen. You didn't specify which type of drinks, so if it's alcoholic beverages you are referring to, this may be increase or exacerbate the feelings of chest pain that may or may not be referred. It must be cked! ...Read more
