Homeopathy Medicine for Indigestion
Although indigestion is common, each person may experience it slightly differently. Symptoms of indigestion may be felt occasionally or as often as daily. Indigestion is a general term that describes discomfort in the upper abdomen. It is also known as dyspepsia or an upset stomach. Indigestion is not a disease, but rather some symptoms experienced, including abdominal pain and a feeling of fullness shortly after start eating.
Indigestion that is not brought on by an underlying disease may be alleviated by modifying one’s lifestyle and taking medication. Indigestion can be a symptom of other digestive diseases.

SYMPTOMS OF INDIGESTION
The following signs and symptoms could be present in indigestion sufferers:
- Early fullness during a meal-we still haven’t finished most of our meal, but we already feel full and might not be able to.
- Uncomfortable fullness after a meal-Overly prolonged feeling of fullness.
- We experience mild to severe pain in the region between our navel and the bottom of our breastbone when we have discomfort in the upper abdomen.
- Burning in the upper abdomen-Between our navel and the bottom of our breastbone, we experience an unwelcome heat or burning sensation.
- Bloating in the upperabdomen-Weexperience a tightness that is uneasy and caused by a gas buildup.
- Nausea –we experience a nauseating feeling.
Belching and vomiting are less common signs and symptoms.
Heartburn is a pain or burning sensation in the middle of our chest that may radiate into our neck, and it is sometimes experienced by people who have indigestion, but heartburn and indigestion are two different conditions.
