Abdominal Pain Relief and Care

Indigestion, also known as dyspepsia, is a common condition that affects many people. It is characterized by symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, and heartburn. While indigestion can be uncomfortable and unpleasant, it usually isn't serious and can be managed with lifestyle changes or home remedies. However, if symptoms persist and worsen, it is a good idea to consult with a medical professional.

We have compiled common tips for relieving indigestion, but feel free to visit one of our locations if you notice symptoms continuing. For specific inquiries regarding care, reach out to our team at (214) 494-8222.

Identifying Indigestion

Indigestion is characterized by a range of uncomfortable symptoms that can occur after eating or drinking. It is important to be aware of these symptoms so you can properly identify and treat indigestion on your own. When experiencing indigestion, you may notice the following:

  • Burning sensation in the upper abdomen
  • Bloating
  • Gas
  • Stomach pain or discomfort
  • Nausea
  • Feeling of fullness even after consuming only small amounts of food
  • Sour or acidic taste in the mouth
  • Overall sense of unease or malaise

It's important to note that if your indigestion is accompanied by other symptoms like chest pain or difficulty breathing, you should seek medical attention immediately, as this could be a sign of a more serious condition. While occasional indigestion is usually not a cause for concern, persistent or severe symptoms should be discussed with a healthcare professional. Advance ER is here to help diagnose the underlying cause(s) of chronic symptoms and treat them accordingly.

Common Remedies for Indigestion

Fortunately, there are a variety of home remedies that can help combat indigestion. If you are noticing symptoms of indigestion, give some of the following tactics a try:

  • Drink ginger ale, herbal tea, clear broth, or a sports drink
  • Take antacids or H2 blockers to neutralize stomach acid
  • Apply a warm compress to your abdomen
  • Take a warm bath
  • Opt for smaller, more frequent meals, as opposed to large meals all at once
