i am a 20 year old male, 6ft at 70kg. I am in average shape, I run for 30 mins three days a week. I only drink occasionally maybe once a week and that may only be one pint or so. Two days ago I drank quite heavily 8 pints and 350mls of vodka perhaps more over 7 hour time period. That morning I woke up to my heart trying to break my rib cage, with its pounding and persistence. I got up and checked it on my mothers blood pressure monitor and it was 105 with my bp being 137/88. This was very worrisome for me as my heart rate is generally at the high 50s when at rest with my bp averaging around 115/65. I tried not to worry about it too much as I knew anxiety would only accelerate the symptoms. I got a shower and remained pretty docile for the day but the pounding remained until I went asleep that night. I checked it multiple times throughout the day and it stayed above 90 but never going over 110 and my bp decreased to 125/80. Today everything is back to normal with just with a slightly elevated heart rate 75 at rest. I am just wondering is it normal to experience this??I've binged before in the past and generally have same problem however this time I was able to monitor it. Will this have serious complications on my heart if I continue drink or is there anything I can do to ease the symptoms I experience. Thanks everyone in advance and sorry for the little story just wanted to make sure I explained everything precisely.
