Indigestion

What is indigestion?

Indigestion is pain or discomfort which can take the form of heartburn.

The pain or discomfort can be felt in your upper abdomen – dyspepsia – or behind the breastbone – heartburn.

Indigestion is usually related to eating, with stomach acid coming into contact with the sensitive lining of the digestive system, causing irritation and inflammation.

Symptoms of indigestion include:

  • Feeling bloated
