Types Of Indigestion - Indigestion symptoms

There are different types of indigestion though indigestion is used as a general term to refer to any digestive problem.

It may be in reference to a chronic indigestion problem that you have for a long time or a severe indigestion problem that occurs suddenly.

The digestive tract is long and consists of different organs. Depending on which organ gets affected more, the indigestion symptoms are manifested.

For example, acid indigestion and heartburn occurs when the esophagus, the food pipe, at the upper end of the digestive tract, is involved.
