Pain in my right side od my breast bone after eating fatty foods and drinking soda could something be wrong?

Maybe (not). . .: Gallbladder disease comes to mind based upon pain associated w/fatty foods although it's usually more right upper quadrant than breastbone.

I'm 30 yr old female and twice now after drinking too much my chest becomes tight, and the area around my heart feels tight for atleast 2 days, which of course makes me feel anxious. Heart attack?

No, but: Being 30 years old and female, unless you have significant other comorbidities (morbid obesity, uncontrolled diabetes or lipids, or drug use like cocaine), the likelihood of a heart attack is fairly low. That being said, excessive alcohol can trigger abnormal rhythms such as atrial fibrillation (the "holiday heart"), which can be dangerous in their own right. Easy fix? Stop drinking excessively. ...Read more

Sick stomach and tight pain across chest especially after drinking alcohol. Get sick also but don't drink often large amounts?

Listen to your body: It's hard to tell exactly what's causing your pain and stomach sickness. Sometimes there are additives in liquor that can cause reactions like nausea. Sometimes people lack an enzyme that breaks alcohol down, and this can cause sick feelings. The easy answer is to avoid the kinds of alcohol that make you feel this way. If all alcohol does this, it's best not to drink. I hope this answer helps. ...Read more

Reflux or gastritis: There are dozens of possibilities as your symptoms are vague & you need to give us a lot more info.

Feeling sluggish, tired and I can feel my heartbeat beat really fast after eating pizza and drinking soda. Is this the food? Or something else?

See below: Unfortunately it's not possible with a limited amount of information to give you specific guidance. Generally a fast heartbeat would not be a result of eating a specific type of food.

Edema: Prolonged sitting on a plane, fluid retention from high sodium containing drinks contribute to formation of edema. Your chest tightness may be due to stress and tension from sleep deprivation, but if there are associated shortness of breath and sharp chest pains and/or calf pain and tenderness, get checked for blood clots in the legs and pulmonary embolism.
