Symptoms of indigestion

Symptoms of indigestion

The main symptom of indigestion is pain or a feeling of discomfort in your upper abdomen (dyspepsia). People often experience the associated feeling of burning behind the breastbone (heartburn), but this may occur on its own. These symptoms usually come on soon after eating or drinking, although there can sometimes be a delay between eating a meal and experiencing indigestion. Heartburn is caused by acid that passes from your stomach into your gullet (oesophagus). If you have indigestion, you may also have symptoms such as: feeling uncomfortably full or heavy belching or flatulence(passing wind) bringing food or fluid back up from your stomach (reflux) bloating feeling sick (nausea) vomiting
