Heart when drinking alcohol
« on: January 09, 2014, 09:50:36 PM »
Does anyone's resting heart rate increase 10-20 beats or more from consuming alcohol ?

Yes. And it's part of the reason that I don't enjoy drinking. It makes me more anxious then I normally am!

Was it always like that for you guys? Were you ever able to drink at one time with out a heightened heart rate?

I don't understand why it happens, when it never use to. I don't think its anxiety related..

And I am not talking about an increase that happens during a hangover, I am talking about when you are actively drinking it

I absolutely get this. I've always been a bit of an anxious person but maybe this article will help you to understand what happens to your brain chemistry etc when you drink.

It's quite basic but still explains it pretty well :)

It just needs the www in the front :)

Yup.  Happens all the time.  Alcohol also messes with your sleep which further increases anxiety.

I haven't had a drink in 3 weeks and my heart palps are gone, I'm sleeping better and generally feel 100% improvement.

The same thing happens to me and that is one reason I don't drink alcohol.
