Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX
Of course it can. stress and anxiety are one of the most common cause of chest is usually associated with inability to take deep breath, stomach pain and headache. symptoms should pass after stress is gone but sometimes it can be chronic. it is important not to ignore such pain because if it progress or cough,fever,sharp pain in left arm or breathing difficulties occur,it can be sign of something more serious. there are medicines which can help in such conditions,asko your gp about it.
