Hodkin's Lymphoma

Hello! I am a 22 year old female. I noticed back when I was 19 (when I took my first sip of alcohol) that after a few minutes my chest started hurting (felt as if I couldn't breathe....and lasted about 20 minutes.) I steered away from that kind of alcohol and told all my friends that I was allergic to it. It was the most excruitating pain I have ever experienced. Lately, I have noticed...whether it's wine/beer/liquor.... not only does my chest hurt significantly, but my neck and jaw also hurt as well. I am a healthy individual. I had a physical a few weeks ago along with a CBC and the only thing abnormal was my WBC count was extremely low. I don't go to a PCP (well, I don't have one), so I googled my alcohol symptom and all I could find was Hodkins Lymphoma. (nice to know it's almost always curable). Who do I talk to about this? I haven't noticed any other symptoms.....except fatigue (but I blame that on being a full time mommy/nursing student/employer. I don't want to make an appointment with a general doctor just because of alcohol pain. I find that silly. Am I being ridiculous? Or should I get checked out?
