Good day to you Hermes:
It is unlikely that your neck will cause chest pains. Chest pains can originate from various regions or organs such as the heart, lungs etc.. and even from the thoracic region of your spine - such pain is referred along the intercostal nerves and may be experienced as a pain in the chest. Your chiropractor or GP should be able to diagnose and advise you accordingly.

The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition. You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical exmanication, diagnosis and formal advice.

Chest pain can be sourced from multiple places. First make sure you have been checked out by your GP and they say it is not over a internal organ source e.g. Heart, lungs etc... Nerves from the neck don't give chest pains, but they can cause problems down the shoulder and around the shoulder blade which may cause your ribs to radiate pain into the chest. Being in pain can possible increase your heart rate.
