In brief: Not necessarily

Chest pain is a very broad symptom, and can be related to many different disorders, some serious, and others not so serious.
If the reason for being on opiates is for chest pain after chest surgery or trauma like a rib fracture, than pain can be from withdrawl of opiates. If that is not the case, you should get checked out by a specialist.

In brief: Not really

Opiate withdrawal can cause muscle aches and anxiety- which may result in chest pain as well.
