Hi,
Welcome to XXXXXXX

Acidity might be responsible for nausea. I advice you to avoid spicy food and alcohol and smoking for few days.
It will be better if you take proton pump inhibitor, these are acid reducing drugs, should be taken empty stomach half an hour breakfast. It will address your acidity and nausea. I advice you to take the drug for 3 to 4 days.

Hope I have provided the information you needed.
Wish you good health. Take care.
