I have acid reflux and have had stomach problems. What could be causing the pain in my chest?

I also feel like coughing some. There for awhile I had real bad stomach pain and blood. That part got better, but I still have light stomach pain and light chest pain right in the middle, plus I feel like coughing some. Any idea what could be causing the chest pain? I’m wondering if I have an ulcer in my digestive system. I figured it was in my stomach, but maybe there’s one higher. Any idea?
