Indigestion is described as a too-full feeling in your stomach that feels uncomfortable at the same time. There might be a burning or painful feeling in the upper parts of your stomach as well.

Common Symptoms of Indigestion
Some of the other common symptoms include bloating, gas, nausea, belly pain and vomiting. You also got to watch out for heartburn, which frequently comes hand-in-hand with indigestion and is not pleasant at all.
