Can back pain cause chest pain?

Back pain does not necessarily cause chest pain, but certain spinal conditions that cause back pain may also be accompanied by pain in the chest. The spinal discs can refer pain from your back straight on through your chest, making coughing or sneezing painful. If you have known coronary artery disease, the pain in your back could be bad enough to give you angina or chest pain.
