No: This is unlikely to be related to any of those meds.

Need cardiac eval: If you have persistent tachycardia please schedule an appointment with a cardiologist as it is not normal to have high heart rate.

Anxiousness/pain: If you are asking purely about your heartrate then, as long someone has ruled out things such as atrial fibrillation and other heart rhythm disorders then, in my opinion the elevated heartrate may be simply on the basis of anxiousness or pain. I don't see the medications as being contributory to the elevated heartrate.
