Re: why do i get a rapid heart beat after drinking alcohol

I get gripping pain in my chest when drinking alcohol too. No one really has ever given me a concrete answer. Watching this thread too.

Because the alcohol and carbs convert into pure sugar. You are basically on a sugar rush!

Feels like someone sitting on my chest and tight in the shoulders too. Sure doesn't feel like a sugar rush, but its as good as any other explanation. I never feel like this after eating a bag full of chocolate. Hey that sounds good... gotta go!
