Hello there.
welcome to healthcare magic forum..
yes..the pain which you have experienced may be because of acid reflux . but left sided chest pain are always dangerous because of suspicion of heart attack. If you experience this pain once I would advice you to go to ER immediately and get a ECG done..
Hope this helps.
take care..
