    By not telling them you took multiple tablets, you make it very difficult for them (whoever they are) to help you.

    Yes, you probably damaged your heart.

    The risk isn't to your heart, it's to your liver from the paracetamol. There are symptoms of liver failure until 80% of your liver has died. On Monday morning make an appointment to see your GP, tell them what you took and ask for a liver function test to put your mind at ease. Your liver can fully heal itself if it's not too damaged but until you have the blood test results avoid all over the counter medications and alcohol. The palpitations and chest pain will be down to anxiety and you'll feel better once you know what's going on.
