Chest Pressure After Drinking

In the last year every time I drink alcohol, I have pressure in the left part of my chest. I have been to hospital/doctor twice and a EGK was preformed that showed no heart problems. I have been told it was reflux. I have been taking pepcid with minimal results. It also feels like I have a abnormal heart beat from time to time that prevents me from sleeping. Any ideas?

Hi..alcohol like spicy foods is a trigger to ur reflux...I am not sure how much u r drinking, but u need to drink in moderation...once u do that ur reflux may calm down.

Have u been to a GI dr?...u should find out what the root cause of ur reflux is...and then  that should be the beginning to feeling better.
