Relax. Your description does NOT suggest a heart attack! - whatever the heart nay cause 'leg felt weak and numb' Heart attack is uncommon (not unknown) in young menstruating women - unless there are special reasons like blood vessel defect from birth, high fat, family history and so on
'For our own satisfaction as well as mine' - see a doctor; have a basic ECG. A friend is good, if she or he takes to a doctor!
Excess of anything is no good - even if it is tea! The caffeine has its own side effects that fit your description. Stop now; at least cut down
Use this as an opportunity to cut down weight, regular exercise, proper food habits etc.
Good luck
