Can back pain sometimes go to cause chest pain?

It's possible. Your spine send out nerve roots that follow dermatomes - these are innervated areas that extend all the way around your front, side and back in bands. A pinched nerve from disk disease can cause both back and chest pain and we do see it from time to time.
