Brief Answer:
Check for diabetes.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for using Healthcare Magic.
Your symptoms are quite varied and may not be related. My concern regarding your need to drink water is that you should have your blood and urine checked for diabetes. The first sign of undiagnosed diabetes is sometimes extreme thirst. Deep breathing can also be related to uncontrolled diabetes.
You feeling of your heart racing may be an arrhythmia that needs investigation and treatment.
I would suggest you see your doctor who can carry out these simple tests and possibly advise you see a cardiologist.
I hope you find this helpful. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
