Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, do not worry, your resp rate is normal ,pulse rate is high due to low Hb. heaviness of chest n chest pain may be due to low Hb, or gastritis which is common on diabetic patients. in both condition patient feels heaviness n pain in chest ,n breathlessness. so discuss it with your doc n start proper treatment.

Hi, Welcome to HaelthcareMagic Forum.

You should be getting yourself examined by a Cardiologist and get a second opinion from him/her.

You will require a ECG and Tread Mill Test to rule out if you have angina as your History suggests you have stable angina.

You will require anti platelet drugs.

Take all your medications, eat healthy nutritious balanced diet which should include fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Avoid stress, anxiety, smoking and alcoholism.

Maintain a Healthy Weight.

Wish you Good Health.

Take Care.
