Yes, allergies can cause chest pain. If a person inhales an allergen into the mid-lower respiratory system (throat/lungs) and that allergen causes an allergic response such as swelling then there is the potential for chest pain to occur.

One way to tell the difference: if the pain gets worse when you inhale and exhale or push down on your chest...then its probably not a heart attack, but if the chest pain remains unchanged with pressing down or inhaling/exhaling is more then likely to be related to the heart and might need quick treatment.
