Indigestion is a term that can refer to either a feeling of fullness or discomfort in the upper abdomen (also known as dyspepsia) or a burning pain behind the breastbone (heartburn). Both dyspepsia and heartburn can happen independently or together at the same time. In most cases, symptoms manifest themselves not long after eating or drinking something. The condition known as indigestion affects a large number of people, but the majority of the time it isn’t severe and only crops up occasionally. The sensitive and protective lining of the digestive system can be irritated when stomach acid comes into contact with it, which can lead to indigestion (mucosa). The acid in the stomach erodes the lining, which can cause irritation and inflammation, both of which can be uncomfortable and even painful.
