I have experienced the same systems as your husband on a number of occasions and the hospital has blamed it on acid reflux and perscribed Nexium as well. I work out on a daily basis but also drink on a daily basis for the last 12 years. The chest pains started 2 years ago. My job gives me a lot of time off where i can drink everyday but there are times where it requires me to work 6-8 weeks every day in which I cannot drink but still manage to make it to the gym.
My chest pains always go away when I stop drinking. I have been off of work now for 7 weeks and have been drinking 6-9 beers just about every day and the chest pains are now stronger then ever. For the first time in my life I am really scared of dropping dead and I know it's the alcohol but I don't want to believe it. I have not had a drink in 8 days and the heart pain has now completely dissappeared again even though it took 4-5 days.
Every day I read this article and finds it helps me.http://www.wikihow.com/Quit-Drinking-without-Alcoholics-Anonymous
hope this helps him as well. I'm forty and have a lot to live for.
