Indirectly: Prolonged exposure to high blood glucose can mostly cause nerve damage. One type is peripheral neuropathy which can cause numbness and tingling (painful), another is focal neuropathy which affects specific nerves. There are other types as well. Patients with high blood sugar also are at increased risk of developing tendonitis/bursitis/joint pain. These could indirectly cause muscle pain.

Braces: Braces have positives and negatives. If you have ligament damage it can protect your joint from further damage. Bracing a painful joint may lead to weak muscles around the joint. Have a good exam by your physician or an orthopedic surgeon, a specialist in bone and joint disease. Any brace should be designed for a specific joint issue, along with instructions on how to keep it healthy.

No: A pulled muscle or perhaps costochondritis can not cause you to have a heart attack. But if you have underlying heart disease, i suggest you have an evaluation from a cardiologist and perhaps have a stress test.
