In brief: Not usually

Chest pain is often difficult to assess because there are so many structures found there, such as the heart, lungs, esophagus, muscle, and bones.
Airborne allergies can cause asthma which is sometimes described as pain or tightness. Food allergies are sometimes associated with eosinophilic esophagitis which sometimes exhibits chest pain as a symptom. If you are having chest pain, see your doctor.

In brief: Possibly

If you are experiencing allergic asthma, then your airways twitch and you experience chest pain.
Gerd is another common cause of atypical chest pain. But do not be foolish. Get the chest pain evaluated to make sure it is not your heart. Rule out the worst first!
