Chest pain: You need additional workup for this. You need to see a cardiologist asap

Perhaps: Chest pain can be caused by multiple etiologies. Things that would help for me to know would be: what type of stress test? Prior history of heart disease? We're there EKG changes? Unfortunately, without this information, I would follow with your doc or a cardiologist.

ATYPICAL CP: Atypical CP in a diabetic needs to be reevaluated. Let your doctor know. They need to update EKG &ECHO AND POTENTIALLY REPEAT A THALLIUM SCAN.BETTER CONTROL OF DIABETES IS ESSENTIAL AND WEIGHT LOSS. You should be GLUTEN FREE.

Need more evaluation: Being a diabetic certainly increases your risk of developing coronary artery disease. I don't know if you may have other risk factors, as well. Also, I don't know what type of stress test you had; some are more sensitive at detecting problems than others. All stress tests can have false negatives, though, and if your symptoms are persistent, you should see your doctor for further evaluation.

See Cardiologist: A negative stress test is good but a detailed history is needed to rule out any cardiac cause for chest pain. You need to improve A1c and Trig levels
