Indigestion (dyspepsia)

Indigestion is a general term used to describe symptoms of stomach upset, particularly after eating. Most people have indigestion from time to time.

Common symptoms of indigestion include:

  • Generalized abdominal pain.
  • Feeling gassy (abdominal bloating).
  • Belching.
  • Nausea.
  • Loss of appetite.

Occasional indigestion is not a concern. Usually home treatment is all that is needed to treat occasional indigestion. If indigestion occurs over and over, a visit to a doctor is needed.
