Can heartburn cause sorness and burning across the upper part of chest?

i have had burning in chest off and on but this morning i woke up with burning in center of chest. Took prilosec but did not help.
Then i got soreness across my upper chest. Not tightness but burning and soreness. Can this be caused by the acid reflex or can it be from my neck issues.Either way does it sound like heart?
