Acidity - Hyperacidity

Description:

Acidity or heartburn are cues that normal digestion has been interrupted for one or more reasons. If stomach acid enters the oesophagus, for example, you may feel heartburn. Swallowing too much air while eating or drinking can induce a distended stomach and cause excessive belching. Stomach infections or inflammation can bring on gastritis. Acidity is an irritation of the oesophagus that is caused by stomach acid. If it is not treated on time, it leads to a broken inflamed portion of the lining or mucosal membrane of the stomach known as ulcer.

Symptoms are abdominal pain felt either at the front or in the back which may be more severe before a meal, nausea and bloating. Some drugs, particularly aspirin, anti- inflammatory drugs and corticosteroids encourage the formation of an ulcer.
