why does my heart beat so hard after drinking

This is not a really unusual complain, strong palpitations after a bout of serious drinking. While it is sometimes just what it seems, simple pounding due to the body's reaction and especially lots of dilated blood vessels, which makes everything feel a little strange (alcohol does do this while in the blood, makes vessels dilate), it also sometimes is a rather unpleasant variation called, which is even more unpleasant feeling and can, potentially, cause indirect problems that can be rather serious. We see a huge increase in complaints about this around the holidays in the US, because a lot of people drink more than they have all year with this result. If this only happens after a bout of drinking you're probably okay, and should consider just cutting down on the volume of alcohol and the duration, perhaps by learning to nurse a drink, make it last longer.


If it's beer this is more difficult than mixed drinks or hard liquor, and so with beer one simply has to put a fixed limit on it and stick to it as a rule. At any rate, this is almost certainly directly related to the drinking and, while it won't cause a, but it can certainly cause palpitations,
and, over time, weaken the heart muscle if the drinking is really heavy-duty, so this is all stuff to consider. Also, drinking isn't necessary to life, and while I'm not suggesting you just stop altogether (unless you discover you have a problem), you could if you had to and it wouldn't kill you. So metering it a little in order to respect this little shout out from your heart definitely is doable. Try it and see what happens. And of course, if this starts to happen when you've not been drinking, come back and we'll talk further, as there would then be something more going on.


I don't see that, though. I think this is classic. Just cut your heart a little slack and things should be okay. Good luck to you. Please follow up with us here as needed. i am a 20 year old male, 6ft at 70kg. I am in average shape, I run for 30 mins three days a week. I only drink occasionally maybe once a week and that may only be one pint or so. Two days ago I drank quite heavily 8 pints and 350mls of vodka perhaps more over 7 hour time period. That morning I woke up to my heart trying to break my rib cage, with its pounding and persistence. I got up and checked it on my mothers blood pressure monitor and it was 105 with my bp being 137/88. This was very worrisome for me as my heart rate is generally at the high 50s when at rest with my bp averaging around 115/65.


I tried not to worry about it too much as I knew anxiety would only accelerate the symptoms. I got a shower and remained pretty docile for the day but the pounding remained until I went asleep that night. I checked it multiple times throughout the day and it stayed above 90 but never going over 110 and my bp decreased to 125/80. Today everything is back to normal with just with a slightly elevated heart rate 75 at rest. I am just wondering is it normal to experience this?? I ve binged before in the past and generally have same problem however this time I was able to monitor it. Will this have serious complications on my heart if I continue drink or is there anything I can do to ease the symptoms I experience. Thanks everyone in advance and sorry for the little story just wanted to make sure I explained everything precisely.
