Can I still drink alcohol with a heart murmur ?

A few weeks ago my GP informed me that I had a slight heart murmur, and suggested I get a heart x-ray done to check that everything s alright, but it s not urgent. Ever since then I ve regularly felt dull twinges across my chest, but am trying not to worry because I tend to overreact to little things like this, so it s probably normal and I m just more aware of it now. There is no history of heart problems in my family. This weekend I m going to a music festival (my first as a legal adult), and I m just wondering if drinking alcohol will be bad for my heart? EDIT: Medication-wise, I m on the contraceptive pill. But nothing else.

Whatever doesn't kill you can only make you stronger and more powerful and then you can take over the world but perhaps I've said too much.
