Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I am Dr Uzair.
I am reviewing your post and will post back with your reply momentarily.

You need to see a cardiologist and get an EKG and Echo to rule out any ischemic event. As you had history of cardiac disease and diabetes so a thorough cardiac evaluation should be done to be on safe side.

Hope this helps.
