HEARTBURN & INDIGESTION

HEARTBURN, INDIGESTION AND SYMPTOMS

Indigestion is often a sign of an underlying problem, such as gastroesophageal 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.

SYMPTOMS YOU MIGHT HAVE

  • Bloating
  • Belching and gas
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • An acidic taste in your mouth
  • Fullness during or after a meal
  • Growling stomach
  • Burning in your stomach or upper belly
  • Belly pain

CAUSES MAY BE THE RESULT FOR THE BELOW CONDITIONS:

  • Aspirin and many other pain relievers
  • Estrogen and birth control pills
  • Steroid medications
  • Some antibiotics
  • Thyroid medicines
  • Ulcers
  • GERD
  • Stomach cancer. This is rare.
  • Stomach infections
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Pancreatitis, an inflamed pancreas
  • Thyroid disease
  • Gastroparesis, a condition where the stomach doesn’t empty properly. It often happens to people with diabetes.
  • Eating too much, too fast, or when you’re stressed. High-fat foods can also add to the problem.
