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

See a doctor: It is a well know.fact that women can present more often than men with "atypical" symptoms when it comes to their heart, so in my opinion this needs to be looked into a little more with some sort of stress test. Ex-smokers often accumulate an excess of mucous in their bronchi which may have been responsible for your symptoms. Esophageal spasm or GERD also may have been the cause. Also, anxiety. ...Read more

I have had thorough evaluations with 3 cardiologists and have had a number of tests. Diagnosis=pvc. I continue to have squeezing chest pain. Cause?

Noncardiac: Most likely, you have non cardiac chest pain. The likelihood that three cardiologists have missed a cardiac cause for recurrent chest pain is very low. Go back to your internist and ask for evaluations to look for other causes for chest pain. Everything else in the chest can also cause pain, and also structures in the abdomen can sometimes create the sensation of chest pain. ...Read more

I rarely drink, one to four glasses of wine per month. I get squeezing chest pain after a half glass . Allergy? Goes away after few hours.

Possible: Is there a difference between red or white wine. Also, do you notice a difference with eating or not. You could have food allergy, but wine is an alcohol and that can make you more prone to reflux. ...Read more

It's likely not a : Hrt attack, try mylanta. It's probably esophageal reflux (heartburn) or possibly anxiety (maybe both). Are u sleeping well at night? Do u clinch your teeth? Significant chest pain is very low probability for a cardiac problem or death at ur age. It would be irresponsible of me to tell u to not go in though. It may b something more significant. ...Read more
