Palate and cardiac pain?

I got  a sharp pain in my soft palate that traveled to my left eye and down to my left upper  chest area and caused moderate discomfort. This is a one time event so far. Is there any nerve pathway that connects palate and chest?

While all nerve pathways connect at some point, I would not suspect it to be related due to an infection or problem with the palate necessarily.  I would suggest going to see your primary care doctor  to find out the cause.
