Is there any relation between drinking caffeine and heart disease?

Occasionally, when I drink large amounts of caffeine or eat fast food, I get severe pains that spread from my left chest to my left arm and don t go away for 10-15 minutes. It hurts so bad I am almost in tears . I am not sure what it is or if I should be worried about it, any ideas??

Could be a heart attack. Could be gas in your abdomen from the carbonation in the soda and eating too fast. That happens to me sometimes, especially when I am drinking cold soda and eating a lot of bread. You might also be swallowing a lot of air when you eat. (Do you gulp or inhale a lot through your mouth before you take a big bite?) If you want to stop the pain, sip the soda and eat smaller bites.
