Brief Answer:
Caffeine overdose

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns...

But it seems that you are suffering from caffeine overdose symptoms. I would recommend that you limit your daily intake of caffeine to less than 400 mg to avoid the recurrence of such symptoms.

I hope you find this helpful. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
Regards
