Can gastroesophageal reflux disease cause chest tightness, inability to catch a deep breathe, soreness?

GERD. Yes. There are many extra-intestinal symptoms of gerd. Or it can be another diagnosis or non-gi related. See your internist first. Chest pain if severe warrants immediate evaluation — especially if older and with risk factors of heart disease. You should also see a gastroenterologist and likely have an upper endoscopy (egd).
