Why am I having chest pains when I have coffee-type beverages?

Why am I having chest pains when I have coffee-type beverages? What I mean by coffee-type beverages is basically anything that can be bought at Starbucks, or in my case, The Coffee Beanery (I hate Starbucks). And the chest pains whenever I have a coffee-type beverage have only begun reciently. For the record, I weigh 310 pounds, am 6 1 , and am 21 years old. And I am asking this in the Heart Diseases section because of the fact that it could obviously be something with my heart.

Coffee along with alcohol and certain foods can aggravate the lining of the stomach and oesophagus. This will quite possibly show up as pain beneath the breastbone (sternum) and as far up as the gullet (throat), and/or acid reflux, (being overweight does increase your risk factors) however, it is always wise to get yourself checked by your doctor to eliminate the possibility of early onset heart disease. Cut the coffee out and try to eat healthy and see how you get on.

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...I have gone to the doctor plenty of times for the same problems. Its chest pain, majority wise on the right side at the end of my ribs. The first time they diagnosis me they told me I had a swelling of cartilage in my chest cavity causing pain. It went away for a week or so then got worse. The next time they told me I had anxiety and put me on depression medicine, the pain went away for a while but came back. I went again and they told me I had an infection on the lining of my lungs, called pleurlyis. The medicine is almost done and i STILL have chest pain. Now along with that I have dizziness, mostly occuring at night, it used to go away when I sit, and now it doesn t go away at all. I eat regularly, I have had my eyes checked and have 20/20 vision. Why am I still in pain. Every time I went to the doctor, it was for the same reason, and every time they tell me I have something else. I have a chest cave in and they are saying I need surgery on it, if so why is it happening when I am 18, and now out of all the years I have had it, they said it is pushing on my heart and liver..then why do I have pain on the right side?

I have been having two types of chest pain lately. One in my upper chest area and the second right near my Xiphoid process. I m not sure if the 2 discomfort are connected somehow but it started happening roughly 7 weeks ago. I was tailgating for a football game, an all day event so to speak. I was eating and drinking not so healthy food and beverages. The next day I woke up with horrible chest pain. Since then it has developed into these different forms. I have been taking nexium on and off along with Tylenol and Tagamet for pain and GERD symptoms. I am a 24 year old male who goes to the gym and lifts heavier weight. Could the xiphoid process pain be muscular? Or am I having a really bad case of GERD? Alcohol seems to intensify the discomfort in my chest. I have yet to make a doctors appointment, hoping that it will just go away, however I do plan on making one for this week. Anything you can provide would be great. Thanks, Ronnie

Hi,
My upper left body feels numb. It goes all the way from the heart/cheast area out to my finger tips. Almost feels like it's asleep. It does not hurt. I have heart diseases in my family but I am only 28 years old. What could it be? Just worried that it's something with my heart. Have had it for about 20 hours ny now.

I recently had an EKG with normal results (2 weeks ago). Was told I had chest wall syndrome. The last couple of days, the pain has been worse, feeling like a sore chest muscle. I just took blood pressure at Publix with a reading of 134 over 82- the worst I've ever had. I am 40 and work out regularly.
