Thanks for writing your query to us.

Patients with long standing diabetes, usually for more than 5 years, could develop decreased motility of the stomach, leading to delayed gastric emptying, which will present as abdominal fullness after meals, early satiety, and upper abdominal discomfort. This is called diabetic gastro paresis and is diagnosed by carrying out phase gastric emptying studies, and an endoscopy. Your chest pain can be due to gastric problem. Kindly consult a gastroenterologist in your area since you are having this problem since long time. You can continue the medicines till that time.
Wish you good health.
