In brief: GERD

Your symptoms could be from acid reflux (gerd) or peptic ulcer disease.
Ask you physician trial of anti acid medications. If you have weight loss, blood in the stool/black stools or symptoms not improving after anti acid treatment then endoscopy maybe indicated.

In brief: Seen a doctor?

Sorry about these disturbances to your sleep.
Two most likely possibilities are: 1) sleep apnea: a condition where people briefly stop breathing in their sleep. Common in overweight people who snore. 2) acid reflux disease: acid from stomach runs up food pipe causing a burn. A doctor should be able to make a diagnosis with more information and provide effective treatment.
