In brief: Not usually but can

Biliary dyskinesia usually causes pain under the rib age on right side although pain in upper abdomen, lower chest or back is possible.
It is atypical for it to cause extreme soreness in breastbone, sounds more like gastroparesis or GERD related symptoms. A thorough evaluation by a gastroenterologist or general surgeon and further work up is necessary.
