Diabetologist 's  Response

you are a Diabetic on OHA and insulin.
You are feeling heaviness in the chest and palpitation.
ECG may help you to some degree. There are things that an ECG can miss.
At this stage you can go for an Echo and consult a Cardiologist.
Incidence of heart diseases are many folds in a diabetic than a non diabetic.
