Can you tell me where the chest pain is located exactly? Any associated symptoms like shortness of breath or sweating? Any other medical conditions or medications that you might be on?

Thank for the additional information.

Central chest pain in diabetics needs to be evaluated as being associated with the heart until proven otherwise. Because heart attacks in diabetics usually dont present with symptoms which are classic. You need to go to the urgent care or ER and get this evaluated with an EKG as soon as possible. even if the pain is mild as in diabetics the nerves around the heart can be damaged and you would not experience the crushing chest pain which is common in other individuals. While this can be due to other causes such as muscular or even the stomach, i would NOT take the chance and would STRONGLY urge you to seek medical attention as soon as possible. An EKG and possibly an Echocardiography along with a set of cardiac enzymes are necessary here.
