Is it normal to get chest pain when drinking alcohol?
Question by: Rachel F
When I drink alcohol, I do not start to feel nausea. Instead I I start to get chest pain. After even one drink, my chest will start to feel really tight. It feels like someone is squeezing my chest so hard that it hurts a little to breathe. I dont drink very often (only about once every 3-4 months) and I usually drink the fruity/girly drinks like a sex on the beach or a singapore sling. Sometimes I can get two drinks in but sometimes I cant even finish one without feeling pain. If I stop drinking, the pain will go away in about 30-45 mins. Is this normal? Is it something I should be worried about?
Oh, and there is nothing wrong with my heart. I had an EKG on my heart for an unrelated problem and it showed nothing abnormal.

That’s not normal. It’s possible you are allergic to something. See a doctor.
