Dear patient,

Thanks for your health concerns. Indeed, both alcohol an excessive caffeine, if you are not a regular, can give all the symptoms you mentioned. I would advise to stay away from these substances and monitor response. If symptoms persist despite, I would recommend consulting your physician. Yours truly,
