Heartburn

Heartburn is a painful pain just below the breastbone in your abdomen. After feeding, in the evening or while lying down or bent over, the pain is always worse.

Occasional heartburn and no cause for concern are prevalent. With lifestyle improvements and over-the-counter drugs, most individuals can handle the pain of heartburn on their own.

Heartburn can be a symptom of a more severe illness that needs medical attention, which is more intense or interferes with your everyday routine.
