Indigestion (Dyspepsia) – Symptoms, Causes & Treatments

What Is Indigestion?

Dyspepsia or indigestion is a general term that refers to discomfort in the upper abdomen. This is not a medical condition. Instead, it describes certain digestive issues that we often experience, such as a feeling of fullness or abdominal pain right after we start a meal. While indigestion is very common, each individual might have different signs and symptoms. It might be feet as frequently as daily or once in a few weeks. These cases can be improved easily with medications and lifestyle changes. In some cases, indigestion might suggest the presence of other digestive conditions that require medical attention. [1]
