How long have to had the tightness and nausea ?? Different possible causes for these symptoms at possible...

A highly likely culprit could be inflammation of the stomach such as gastritis or ulcer --- do acidic foods bother you ? Orange juice ? Coffee ?? These could be clues as to this being cause ...

Other problems could cause these described symptoms such as pancreatitis ...( less likely but possible..)

Try going to bland diet ...

See if an antacid such as Mylanta may help ...

Avoid common GI irritants ( alcohol/ coffee/ spicy foods/ acidic foods/ anti-inflammatory medicines )

Follow up with your doctor if symptoms do not clear very soon or if they worsen...
