Samantha stop worrying, those are not symptoms of heart trouble. It could be you have carpal tunnel syndrome in your left hand or that you are sleeping on it at night. Just because you have diabetes doesn't mean heart attack. Chest pain can come from muscle spasms or stress. My guess would be stress. You are stressing yourself out over nothing at all. Relax Samantha, you are fine, stop worrying!!
