Yes: Caffeine could be one of many causes of rapid heart beat. You need to see a doctor to explore other causes of rapid heart beat ASAP.

Is it bad to take aspirin and nurofen together? I woke up with a terrible headache, and took an aspirin. Now I have some bad period pain :(

Ok if short-term use: Nurofen contains Ibuprofen (motrin or advil (ibuprofen) in the U.S.). Aspirin is a similar anti-pain, anti-inflammation drug, but Aspirin can cause more stomach upset. For typical, occasional headaches and/or menstrual pains, using normal doses of either or both on the same day is probably ok (for short-term use). A doctor should evaluate bad pains or prolonged symptoms to rule out more serious problems.
