Yes ma'am, it is most certainly possible

Detailed Answer:
Hello ma'am and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. Yes, it is quite possible. Pain in the upper part of the chest, the shoulder region, arms and even the back (including shoulder region) is quite common with many gastric conditions like gastritis, hyperacidity, GERD, hiatus hernia, etc.

I hope this helps. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help.

Best wishes.
