Re: energy drinks

Too much caffeine can cause higher blood pressure, faster/irregular heart rate and these could contribute to a tight chest feeling...and sugar can hype you up as well. I know that such drinks can help when you are tired but that much caffeine is really not good for you. I quit caffeine about 25 years or more ago...am very glad that I did....
