Been experiencing a severe stomach virus for 3 days now. I woke up this morning with intense, radiating chest pain. It doesn't feel like heartburn. ?

In brief: Insufficient data

When you say "stomach virus" you don't say what kind of symptoms you had.
Also when you say "Chest pain " you are not telling where exactly it is located and where it is radiating. Hence it is difficult to answer your question. If the pain is intense please go to the emergency room right away or better call 911. It is not likely to be a heart attack but could be another serious problem.

In brief: Referred pain

Hi, the pain you're experiencing in your chest is probably referred pain from your stomach and should resolve with the stomach virus.
It may also be from an electrolyte imbalance caused by the stomach virus. drinking water with a little sea salt and sugar can help or a low sugar electrolyte drink like Recharge.
