Lots possible here: Vomiting reflex is controlled by 2 units in brain medulla--one receives nerve impulses from GI tract, the other is a chemical receptor. Both have nerve connections to not only GI tract (pharynx, mesenteric vessels, bile ducts) but also from brain corticobulbar areas that mediate smells, sights, & taste. Maybe you have gastritis, but maybe your symptoms have little to do with GI tract. Get checked.

Acid reflux?: Try taking some Pepcid (famotidine) AC at bedtime to see if this helps. If not, see your doctor to get checked out.

Acid, asthma, heart!: Most likely source of chest tightness occurring at rest at night with or without nausea is gastroesophageal problem (heartburn, acid reflux, ulcer). Another source is lung-related (asthma, COPD). The deadliest source is heart-related (heart attack, heart disease, irregular heartbeat, blood clot in heart/lung). GO TO ER NOW to rule out a heart problem!!! If ER clears you, then go to PCP for eval.
