In brief: It Can

Chest pain can be caused by a number of factors that are not cardiac in nature.
Physical stress or exercise, for example, can cause costochondritis. (check for pain that is reproducible when pushing on the chest.) emotional stress, anxiety, and panic can also cause acute chest pain that may feel like a heart attack but isn't. See your doctor to discuss symptoms and get a baseline ekg.
