Weak pain in chest after drinking energy drink. Why pain? Reflux disease or heart burn?

Hi. Im feeling a weak pain in my chest after drinking an energy drink. im drinking energy drinks since 3-5 years and i never felt something like this before. but for now is stopped drinking this for stuff the last time i drink-ed one of this was 5 days ago . Should i stop drinking energy drinks ,and start coffee to get my daily energy ? I feel something like this after drinking a DR.pepper (contains coffein) but it feels different: no chest pain i only feel that my throat is burning (only sometimes). I also drink coca cola and i feel nothing wrong i can drink even 2-3 and still ok. why i can drink coca cola with no problem and energy drinks/dr.pepper cant? My question is:
What is wrong with me whats with this pain after drinking energy drinks?
should i only stop drinking this stuff and its no problem, or should i go visit the doctor? please also tell me if im having reflux disease or heart burn or something else or not.
PS...sorry for my English.

by the way: im drinking the smallest one 250ml (energy drink)

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Energy drinks contain a high level of caffeine and other stimulants. The amount of caffeine is alot greater than what is present in cola cola or dr pepper.

High levels of caffeine can cause chest pain and palpitations in some persons. It may be best to stop using them and visit your doctor for an evaluation.

He or she will examine you and possibly suggest and ECG which would look at the rhythm of the heart. It will also show if there are any aspects of the heart with a reduced blood supply.

I hope this helps
