Hi there,
I am an experienced Medical Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

If the pain is located on the left side, then it is possible to be heart related.

Myocardial infarction can cause such symptoms.

Infection or pneumonia, blood clot or pulmonary embolism are other possibilities.

Next possibility is neuropathy or nerve damage from diabetes.

Neuropathy occurs after long standing diabetes.

I will suggest an evaluation in the hospital to rule out heart attack first.
Best wishes,
Please reply back if you need any further clarification.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
