In brief: Probably benign

Chances are it's probably just an upper respiratory infection or laryngitis or viral infection or cold.
Drink lots of fluid, rest up. If symptoms don't improve, please see your doctor for an evaluation and possibly antibiotics. If the chest pain gets worst or if you have trouble breathing, see your doctor right away.

In brief: Viral

Likely a viral syndrome, but with diabetics bacterial infection can mimic, or follow.
