What is Indigestion:
Indigestion (dyspepsia) happens to almost everyone. Eating habits or a chronic digestive problem can trigger indigestion. Indigestion can cause stomach pain or bloating, or heartburn, nausea, and vomiting. Indigestion something results from overeating or eating too fast. Spicy, greasy, and fatty foods also increase the risk of indigestion. Lying down too soon after eating can make it harder to digest food. This increase the risk for abdominal discomfort.
Medication isn’t the only treatment for indigestion. You may be able to improve digestion and relieve uncomfortable symptoms with lifestyle adjustments. Several medications can treat indigestion, but may cause side effects. Over-the-counter antacids like Maalox and Mylanta help neutralise stomach acid, but may cause diarrhoea or constipation.
