Indigestion

Indigestion is the discomfort or burning sensation you feel in your tummy often after a large meal.

Also know as dyspepsia, indigestion can strike at any time and can be caused by rushed eating, poor chewing or an excess of stomach acid.

Some people may only suffer with indigestion a couple of times a year but for others it is every day, with varying symptoms including nausea and vomiting.

Symptoms of indigestion can vary from mild discomfort that may only last a few minutes to a more severe pain that can leave you with crippling pain for hours. Click on the bubbles to show some common symptoms of indigestion:
