[IP] Shortness of breath

     You didn't say if the SOB and chest pain happen after exertion  or at 
rest, but either way, don't let them blow you off.   Only having the big D 
for 5 yrs, and only being 32 puts you at lower risk for heart disease, but 
it's not unheard of.  Having a family history of a close relative with heart 
disease at a young age will increase your risk, but HOPEFULLY they asked you 
all these questions.  If not, find another doc.
You need a stress test among other things, and on the up side.... if you have 
heart disease, I bet you'll get that pump!  Good luck and remember it's your 
body and your health so be assertive.
