What causes indigestion?

Acid is created in your stomach to break down food so that it can be absorbed by your digestive tract. If too much acid is created the sensitive lining of your digestive tract can come in contact with it – causing irritation or inflammation.

Most cases of indigestion are mild and can be treated at home by taking over the counter antacid medication. Changes in your diet or avoiding spicy foods may also ease symptoms.

If your symptoms persist or increase your GP may refer you to a consultant for further examination and treatment.
