Generally no: Severe stomach inflammation may cause chest pain, but should not lead to fast heart beats or shortness of breath. However, sometimes those who have heart disease(coronary artery disease) experience fast heart beats, shortness of breath, and think they have gastritis when in fact, they are having heart pain.
