In brief: Coronary

Coronary arteries can spasm and if duration long enough damage can be done.
If identified during work up there is treatment . Most heart attacks are atherosclerotic and thrombotic. Migraines and headaches can relate to spasm, but brain damage from those is unusual.

In brief: Stroke

No. Spasm and nerve problems involves the peripheral nervous system and musculoskeletal system. A stroke or a heart attack occurs when blood flow to brain or heart is interrupted.
I cannot immediately think on a circumstance the two conditions could be related. However, pain in the chest area due heart attack may mimic pain from muscle spasm and viceversa. Always check with your physician. Be well.
