Dr. Alex Martinez answered
Specializes in Allergy
Not usually: Chest pain is often difficult to assess because there are so many structures found there, such as the heart, lungs, esophagus, muscle, and bones. Airborne allergies can cause asthma which is sometimes described as pain or tightness. Food allergies are sometimes associated with eosinophilic esophagitis which sometimes exhibits chest pain as a symptom. If you are having chest pain, see your doctor.
