Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with the reply momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 8 days ago.

Since you are diabetic; these symptoms of left side face and head pain with left arm pain should be investigated by an EKG. This is all the more important as it started with sweats 4 hours ago.

This can be heart related so going to emergency room would be advised strongly.

The other reason for this pain can be pinched nerves in neck. This would need evaluation by an MRI.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
