Hi and thanks for the query.
New onset chest pain in an adult above 40 years of age should always arise suspicion towards acute coronary syndrome or heart conditions. I would suggest that you get an EKG done before you draw any conclusions about this being GERD or stomach related.
Once an EKG rules out heart conditions, GERD can be discussed and thought of as a cause.
Hope this helps.Please do leave a positive rating for the service.
