Doctor Malik said: “Alcohol can be toxic to the heart — it can weaken the heart muscle. And it, too, can predispose a person to arrhythmias like atrial fibrillation.”
The signs that you’re being struck by a heart attack include discomfort in your chest that “happens suddenly” and “doesn’t go away”, explains the British Heart Foundation.
They also include experiencing pain that spreads down your arms, or to your neck, jaw, back or stomach.
The charity explains that it could feel like heaviness or a burning pain like indigestion.
