Hello and thank you for using HCM. I carefully read you question and i understand your concern.I will try to explain you something and give you my opinion.
Someone might experience palpitations, skipped heart beats for different reasons. As you explain, my opinion is that we are dealing with a rhythm issue.
These symptoms might be because of what we call extra-systolic beats. These are electrical impulses generating from parts of the heart different from normal sinus rhythm
. They cause this escaped skipping beat that you feel, an anxiety
But when you feel that your heart is running in a chaotic way this might be another problem, what we call atrial fibrillation
.This is an arrhythmia
, when the heart loses its normal sinus rhythm.
It is quite known in cardiology that atrial fibrillation might generate because of excessive alcohol consumption. We even have a syndrome for this. It is called "mondey morning syndrome", because of this kind of arrhythmias that generates after Saturdays with alcohol consumption.
So, my opinion as a cardiologist is that now its time to explore this symptoms and dont leave them like this any more.
I suggest you to make a blood analyses, an electrocardiogram, an echo-cardiography and a holter monitoring to see what kind of rhythm issue is this.
At mean time you have to stop drinking beers because they exacerbate your symptoms and this is not a good thing.
After finding what kind of a rhythm issue is this, than we can think for treatment oppositions.
I hope i was helpful. Whish you good health and best regards.
