Article: Indigestion

Indigestion is a condition that is frequently caused by eating too fast, especially by eating high-fat foods quickly.

Symptoms of indigestion are as follows:

  • A pain or a burning feeling in the upper portion of the stomach
  • Feeling sick to one's stomach; nausea
  • Feeling bloated
  • Sometimes uncontrollable burping
  • Heartburn
  • A bitter taste in the mouth from stomach acid coming up into the esophagus.

Antacids neutralise excess stomach acid, and can provide temporary relief of indigestion.
