To me it sounds like normal, albeit not fun, teething. My son is doing something similar, lots of extra drool that is both coming out his mouth and gurgling in his throat. And since he is clearly uncomfortable with the teeth coming in, he isn't napping as well as usual either. When he first started teething (we're on teeth 9&10 now) he woke a ton at night, every 1.5 hrs or so all night long for a couple weeks--so changes in sleep can be normal (though I don't remember my daughter doing anything this extreme 3 years ago). If you don't think your daughter is sick, giving her some baby advil to help her sleep at night is a possibility. I don't like giving stuff like that when my son is sick, but to ease pain that is bad enough that his sleep is being continually disrupted for a few days, I do it.
