Yes: Acid reflux can be associated with back pain. Esecially in the thoracic area.
Dr. Eduardo Ibarguen-secchia

Yes, but be cautious: Upper back pain can be a rare symptom of gerd. But usually indicates some complications such as erosive esophagitis. Pancreatitis is frequently overlooked and can be serious. See your doctor and do not blow it off to gerd until proven otherwise.
Dr. Ahmad M Hadied

Not usually: If the disease was advance and get complicated it could.
