CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS OF INDIGESTION OR DYSPEPSIA
Uncomfortable sensation in your belly during or after a meal. You might have burning or pain in the upper part of your stomach, too. It is indigestion, also called dyspepsia.
Indigestion is often a sign of an underlying problem, such as gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD), ulcers, or gallbladder disease, rather than a condition of its own. Any treatment you get will depend on what the cause is. But there are ways you can feel better or avoid getting it.
Symptoms might be worse when you are stressed. If you swallow too much air when you eat, that can make belching and bloating worse.
People often have indigestion along with heartburn (a burning feeling deep in the chest), which happens when stomach acids rise into the esophagus.
