Thanks for posting your query.
As such there is no possibility of hole in stomach as stomach contents come outside in the peritoneal cavity and infection may spread.
You are most likely suffering from peptic ulcer disease with associated esophagitis (Food pipe erosions).
Chest pain may be due to involvement of esophagus or may be due to muscle sprain.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist & chest physician simultaneously.
You should go for endoscopy and chest x ray on preliminary basis.
You should take proton pump inhibitors along with muscle relaxants.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
