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

This may have been a silent heart attack. A silent heart attack may occur in diabetes or people who have neuropathy. Pain may not be perceived by diabetics and in neuropathy.

This silent heart attack needs to be confirmed by an echocardiography.

EKG may have about 10% false positive diagnosis.
