A burning sensation with discomfort in the upper part of the stomach is known as dyspepsia. It is also known as indigestion. Heartburn is a symptom of dyspepsia and indicates that your stomach is not functioning correctly to digest food. Sometimes, the patient may experience pain in the abdomen while others may describe this condition along with;
- Feeling bloated
- Feeling uncomfortable
- Having an upset stomach
- vomiting or burping
All of these symptoms must be considered seriously as they may be pointing out at another problem known as a peptic ulcer, with another array of signs and symptoms, including occasional bleeding. In some cases, if not treated, they can lead to the medical emergency known as perforation.
