In brief: Many disorders

Disorders of the muscles, bones or joints of the chest wall can mimic a heart attack.
Same with disorders of the digestive system such as heartburn, acid reflux, and certain disorders of the esophagus. . Also states where excess adrenaline is released, such as reactions to certain drugs, medications, extreme stress, and even anxiety disorders, can cause chest tightness and pain.
