Thanks for your concerns, yes there is truly a source of concern given your history of diabetes and the elevated troponin in the setting of sinus tachycardia. The first thing that needs to be ruled out are significant blockages of the arteries of the heart giving rise to those symptoms, thus a cardiology visit is in order. he may decide to conduct a stress test or with the information and symptoms that you have had may recommend an angiogram (invasive test with dye to look at the vessels of the heart). I would not ignore the symptoms or take them lightly.

Truly yours,
