In brief: Doubtful

The position you sleep might cause musculoskeletal pain, but lying on your back and snoring probably won't.
If you are having chest pain you really should discuss this with your doctor.

In brief: Yes

Snoring can be loud/strong enough to cause chest discomfort in the morning.
If you are overweight and have daytime fatigue you need to ask your doctor about being evaluated for sleep apnea.
