What is indigestion?

What is heartburn?
Heartburn is a symptom of indigestion and acid reflux. Acid reflux is what happens when excess stomach acid moves up from your stomach and into your food pipe, and the irritation it causes creates the burning sensation in your chest known as heartburn. Heartburn isn’t the only symptom of acid reflux, with some of the other most common symptoms including:
-A sore throat
-A bitter taste in the mouth
