Thanks for your question.
The answer is yes. Gas pains can be very severe, and caused by excess air in the stomach or esophagus, as well as in the large intestine. It can be very difficult to separate the two.
If you are having severe pain, you should see your doctor for an evaluation. Do not be fooled by your own diagnosis. There are several questions that need to be asked and answered, as well as obtaining a physical examination and electrocardiogram. The best person to figure this all out is your physician. So call and make an appointment to be seen as soon as possible.
When it comes to chest pain, there should be no second guessing. See your doctor.
Best wishes and feel better.
