Indigestion is not a disease, but rather symptoms you experience from time-to-time, or as often as daily. When you experience indigestion (medically known as dyspepsia) you typically feel a burning sensation in your upper stomach, nauseous, and bloated. Indigestion is not the same as heartburn, because indigestion is not related to your stomach acid. Indigestion can sometimes be a symptom of another digestive disease.
Typical signs of indigestion include:
- Burping and loud stomach gurgling
- Feeling bloated
- Feeling full too soon while eating
- Feeling pain, burning, and discomfort in your upper belly or abdomen
- Nausea or vomiting
