Brief Answer:
Please don't delay any further and get yourself checked out at the earliest

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX Welcome to HCM,

I've gone through your query and understand your concern..

Well, right now i'm more concerned about you due to the burning sensation in stomach region along with the chest discomfort..

Considering your age, these symptoms and the history of diabetes for 10 years, the possibility of underlying cardiac event/anomaly must need to be ruled out at first without any further delay..

Later on, once those alarming features get ruled out, the anti-diabetics dosage can be optimized..

So I'd request you to please don't delay any more and visit your nearest ER for a detailed physical check-up as well as few prompt investigations (a 12 EKG to start with and further proceed as per the findings)..please call for help, and don't try to drive on your own..

Please let me know how you stay in the due course..

Any further queries are most welcome..

Take Care
Kind Regards
