(Also known as dyspepsia)

Indigestion is a common feeling in your belly, which usually happens after eating or drinking. It can be a pain in your stomach, or feel like you’re full just after you’ve started eating.

You might have indigestion if you have:

  • Consumption of alcohol or caffeine
  • Smoking
  • Stress or anxiety
  • Feeling full or bloated after eating
  • Burning sensation in the upper abdomen
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Growling or rumbling stomach
  • Eat smaller, more frequent meals
  • Avoid triggering foods and drinks
  • Chew food slowly and thoroughly
  • Sit up straight while eating and avoid lying down immediately after meals
  • Over-the-counter antacids like Rennies
