In brief: Not sure but...

Frequent thirst can be a sign of diabetes or thyroid disease as can palpitations.
I would suggest seeing your primary physician for some blood work and a holter monitor.

In brief: ?sleep apnea

Mouth breathing, sleep apnea; but pounding heart is concerning and suspect cardiac cause.
Other possibilities are hypoglycemia or nightmares which may be associated with excessive sweating.
