In brief: Possibly

If you have gerd with a sliding type hh, esophageal spasm can cause chest pain very similar to cardiac pain.
A para esophageal hernia can also cause retrosternal pain. You should see your physician for an appropriate work up. Gb colic can also cause pain thought to be cardiac in origin.
