Acidity, flatulence and indigestion are interlinked. Hypersecretion of gastric fluid (hydrochloric acid) may lead to dyspepsia, gastro esophageal reflex disease, bilious vomiting and if not treated then to peptic ulcer. Factors which effect hypersecretion are spicy food, irritant drinks, mental or psychological factors like anxiety, overwork and stress. Some genetic and structural abnormalities also cause these problems. As a result of elevated acidity, the digestive mechanism is disturbed. Some of the acids normally pass to lower areas effecting their pH, and consequent indigestion, flatulence and colic. Gastric disturbances in many cases are associated with headache which is also considering during treatment.
Commonly observed symptoms out of the above mechanism include:
