Chest pain. Stopped drinking cold turkey. Dark and strong smelling urine. What could it be?

Hi I m a 24 year old male and lately (like for a year or 2) I ve noticed I m having chest pain that has slowly gotten worse and it feels like my heart . I have been a heavy drinker, real heavy, since I was 18 and about a week ago I stopped cold turkey and it has gotten worse, kinda like it skips beats or stops. I dont use drugs with the exception of weed and when I quite drinking I quit smoking , I m in great shape but I dont work out.I ve been drinking alot of water since I quit drinking beer, prob 5-8 L a day and my urien is still very dark and strong smelling. I dont know what it could be and why my urien isnt getting lighter. I havent even drank anything but milk and water. Any help would be great.

Greetings from

I am Dr Sourav Chakraborty and i will be helping you with your query .

I have gone through your case scenario and i do believe your symptoms are suggestive of alcohol withdrawal , please do not hesitate to visit your primary physician for proper evaluation.

Since you stopped your drinking habit suddenly , it got exaggerated for you.

Chest pain for a 2 years duration is worrisome and can indiacate a development of cardiac ailments but even extreme acidity or stomach upset can mimic such chest pain episodes for you.

Your dark and strong odour urine is highly suggestive of dehydration or bio chemical abnormalities in your blood which needs proper evaluation

Please do not neglect your symptoms and visit your doctor, also talk to him regarding a proper way of de-addiction plan for your self , as if you don't follow a proper regime , it may result in relapse.

Hope i have been able to help.
Take Care.
