I'd have to get an idea as to how much caffeine entered your system. If you had a sizeable hit over a short time ,those effects could have been provoked. Your tolerance of caffeine also would play a role. I assume those effects gradually resolved, but if frequent such symptoms occur, you would need an evaluation by your MD or a cardiologist.
