Yes: Gerd would cause chest pain but not the shortness of breath -- you should see your doctor and get a good checkup.

Yes: Yes it can. Is your stool dark? May look to whether you have blood in your stool. May also want to consider stop taking anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen if you are. Because of your shortness of breath, it is necessary to go to the hospital or seek medical care via an urgent care center.
