Indigestion and heartburn are separate conditions, but they often have similar symptoms and related causes. Indigestion reveals itself through a sensation of fullness or bloating after eating. This results in a burning or pain in the stomach. Heartburn stems from excess acid buildup in the stomach that rises up into the esophagus and leads to burning sensations in the upper chest and throat. Both conditions find relief through antacids or acid-blocking medication, but knowing the causes may prevent the symptoms.
Indigestion is very common and most people have it from time to time. Recent studies have shown that about 70 million people are affected by the condition within the United States of America alone.
