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

Constipation likely : Coffee can be constipating and cause reflux which could be responsible for the symptoms you are having. However if your chest pain is with activity, or you faint, or have weigh loss i would visit the doctor soon. Otherwise limit to i coffee a day and see if that helps. ...Read more

I have recently been drinking Coffee and today I have had tight chest pains on my left hand side for a couple of seconds. Should I be worried?

Caution advised: It is unlikely that the chest pains are serious but anytime you have these you must be cautious and if occurs with shortness of breath, sweating, weakness, or lightheaded feeling then you should see a doctor immediately. Too much caffeine can cause symptoms and is dependent on the amount. If pains are continuing and come with exertion again should seek medical evaluation. ...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.
