well first off, you might want to stop drinking. if it hurts, why do it again?

second, pain on ingestion of alcohol is a documented symptom of hodgkins disease. it is a rare symptom, but has been confirmed nonetheless. see your GP for more information.

Yea i think i would agree with the stop drinking comment (at least drinking hard liquer). But it could also just be heart burn. Many people mistake heartburn for something else especially upon first experiancing it. Keep some tums handy and next time you feel it try to take a few. I defanitely get heartburn when i drink so it is a possibility (especailly if those were redbull and vodkas) energy drinks will tear you up inside.
