Can I drink alcohol if I get palpitations from coffee?

My doctor says I may have svt but he doesn't know. We think it's some kind of arrhythmia which is irregular heart beat. Whenever I drink one cup of coffee I get palpitations meaning I can feel my heart pound and increase temporarily for a matter of seconds.. Sometimes I feel like drinking alcohol lije wine or vodka but I'm scared I might die if I drink it. If I drink vodka I may drink like 4 shots. If I can't even handle a cup of coffee does this mean I can't drink alcohol or even 1-2 glasses of wine?

    Alcohol can cause our hearts to beat a lot faster a while after drinking it..... especially if a person over-does it. Ask the doctor

    Why don't you ask your DOCTOR? Yahoo strangers are not reputable sources for medical conditions.
