Hi,
Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. Taking in view of the symptoms of excessive thirst, loss of weight & racing heart, I'll suggest 2 diseases to be ruled out First is diabetes mellitus. For that you'll need to do a blood sugar and HbA1c (glycated hemoglobin). The second is Hyperthyroidism.

For that you need to undergo thyroid function tests. The pain which you have mentioned in the chest could likely be a musculoskeletal pain. However, please get an x-ray chest done to rule out a pathology in the lung. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
