    Good morning. Sorry about that. When did you notice this? Any pain in your upper abdomen? Sometimes this would depend on the type of food you eat especially when it's heavy like yam, fufu etc Or does it occur with every meal? Awaiting your response. Thanks

    Ok. Try not to eat so late at night. It would worsen your indigestion. Also make sure to take plenty of water when you eat to aid in food digestion. Take antacids like gascol 10mls 3x daily for the abdominal discomfort you are feeling. Also try to exercise regularly to help burn off the excess calories you are consuming. I believe this will help you. If it doesn't, please let me know. You may need to be physically reviewed by a doctor. Take care
