Detailed Answer:
Hello Ma'am

After going through the medical details provided by you i would like to tell you that your symptoms doesn't point towards any cardiac issues instead look for of Gastrointestinal issue.

However taking into consideration the fact that you are diabetic and considering your age group its advisable to get one ECG and an Echocardiography done to rule out any cardiac issue.

For your symptoms of chocking i would like to suggest you to kindly visit a Gastroenterologist personally for evaluation and opinion.

Kind Regards
Dr Bhanu Partap
