In brief: No

However, rarely a lung tumor, which can cause chest pain can cause overactive cortisol.
See a doctor for an evaluation.

In brief: What ?

Look at the cartoon for some causes of chest pain.
See your doctor for evaluation treatment varies with the cause why do you think you have excess cortisol? How do you know your CP is noncardiac and no musculoskeletal? Did you have any tests done?
