chest pain

I am a 30 year old male with health anxiety. I have noticed that my Health anxiety is at its highest the day after a bingeBinge eating of Alcohol. The symptoms that a hangover produces are often in my case mistaken for serious health problems. For example, if i am feeling sick or have a severe headache i relate it too perhaps a brain haemorrhage or stroke, and i find that it plays with my heart too, giving me chest pains and palpitationsHeart palpitations. I have these symptoms on and off all the time but they are always increased with a hangover.  Just wondered if anyone had the same thing?

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
It is possible that you have acidity that gets aggravated by alcohol. The treatment of acidity involves taking a proton pump inhibitor such as omeprazole,  lansoprazole or pantoprazole empty stomach in the morning. Along with it you can try over the counter antacids. However I would recommend you see a doctor and take medication under a doctor’s supervision.
Chemicals like adrenaline, alcohol, caffeine, cocaine, amphetamines, and other drugs all cause palpitations. Disease (such as hyperthyroidism and pheochromocytoma) or mitral stenosis, panic disorder all cause this. Palpitations may be associated with heart problems, anemias and low blood pressure. If you have cough and are taking medicines that contain asthalin or terbutaline then the palpitations can be a side effect of the drugs.
Hope this helps. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
