Heart & Cardiology/Husband's recurring chest pain

The experience you described sounds very similar to one I experienced recently as a result of gym work and physical exercise. I too saw a doctor and found that everything was normal and concluded that there was nothing to be concerned about. I later took the advice of another and removed the Gatorade from my exercise routine and found that my symptoms had disappeared. The Gatorade and other electrolytic drinks seem to work in a strange way as my heart Palpitations occurred days after the Gatorade consumption. Seems whatever chemical is used in the drink stays in the body for several days and has a very negative effect towards the end.

I was drinking LARGE amounts of (Gatorade) I started having strong chest pains.  I looked up Gatorade and found too much gatorade.

I stopped Gatorade and have not had the chest pains since.

Hopefully the chest pains did not cause heart trouble. (72)
