Diabetologist 's  Response

You are an elderly Pre Diabetic, overweight woman.
Past history of Herpes Zoster infection.
Now complaining of pain around the area of chest and upper back.
This may be a referred pain from Ramsay hunt syndrome or neurological pain from Herpes infection itself.
Considering your age and Pre Diabetic status you run a risk of cardiac disease.
ECG and ECHO are advised.
