Hello. I'm a 46 year old male. I've been experiencing chest tightness on and off since I had an operation last November. I had a circumcision, without a general anesthetic, which, I admit, traumatized me a bit! However, I've been experiencing palpitations for a long time, which are particularly bad when drinking beer or tea. I've been drinking beer continuously since I quit smoking in 1999. I've had ECG's a few times, but on each occasion the doctor has cleared me.
