If ECG, Echo and blood tests rule out heart related issue, then the pain is most likely due to esophageal spasm, consult a gastroenterologist to confirm.

Hello, your tachycardia needs to be investigated. An electrocardiogram would help a lot. I cannot know if you've got any heart problems but some arrhythmias may cause a fast heart beat particularly after using alcohol like atrial fibrillation. This and other arrhythmias may be dangerous to your health and need to be investigated and confirmed or excluded as soon as possible. Kind Regards!
