Do not ignore it but it doesn't sound like something major, do you drink other caffeinated beverages like coffee and cola?

Talk to your GP about it, especially if you take other meds it can be a simple interaction and nothing major but you can't know unless you ask.

I'm literally drinking red bull right now and feel great. You may be sensitive to caffeine, Idk. Why do you avoid doctors?

These things are a law of diminishing returns imo, You'll get less 'energy' and more 'urgh' with every can.

I know that exact same chest pain if i've overindulged in Purple Rockstar and I have to have a shake and remind myself not to drink it as it's gutrot. It's hardly giving me 'clean' energy.

I understand that, I hate going to a GP, they are often ignorant and dismissive. But still, I'd rather promptly treat anything I might have that is preventable or curable. If I find them unhelpful or unconvincing, I ask to be referred to a specialist.

I had this same experience but with a Lucozade. My heart suddenly started beating really fast, even though I was sitting still. :confused:

Mine only lasted like 2 mins.
These effects of energy drinks are normal apparently. This webpage has info about it http://secondscount.org/heart-condit...art-know-risks
(sorry it's an American website lol )
