Indigestion symptoms can include heartburn, a fullness in the stomach during and before a meal is completed as well as discomforting belching and nausea. Some foods can trigger these symptoms and the knowledge that there are some which we consciously take and know can cause the indigestion generally does not stop anyone from continuing on to eat. Anyway, why should we avoid such fantastic foods even if the indigestion is inevitable?
Practical people never want to go through another bout of indigestion symptoms once they are experiencing it in the present. However, people generally tend to forget about the symptoms if they are faced with all the tempting foods laid out in front of them. We generally toss precaution to the wind when at a party or occasion where all these foods are generally served.
When going through indigestion symptoms, people immediately ask what does heartburn feel like when they feel a burning sensation on top of their bloatedness. Even if heartburn is a different condition than indigestion, heartburn can still present itself as part of the symptoms, which just makes it all the more confusing for some not aware of the difference.
For everyone, indigestion symptoms can be triggered by varying foods and some that trigger for others do not generally have the same effect for the remaining few. It is well known, though, that fatty foods and spicy foods like chilli or chilli con carne can cause indigestion. Sometimes it is just the spices in the ingredients that trigger the symptoms, sometimes it is the beans that can cause the bloatedness. Whatever the symptoms may be, they don’t last more than a day or two. It can be alarming if the symptoms persist and increase in severity. When this happens, it is advisable to have a check up with a doctor.
Avoidance of the tempting foods can prevent the indigestion; however, there are some that can cause the same especially when an unknown allergen can trigger the discomfort. There are also times when a frequently ingested food slowly starts to get unacceptable to the body and one is taken unawares when the indigestion symptoms hit after eating a ‘safe’ food.
A good diet protocol is the only way to prevent indigestion from recurring frequently. Knowing what is not good for the body and learning to avoid it may not be as simple as it sounds as people are generally hard-headed in resisting temptation, with or without knowledge that indigestion symptoms may just come out of the blue.
