Indigestion can be caused by eating to fast

Gastrooesophageal reflux is a type of indigestion that is possibly caused by eating food too fast. The most prominent symptom is a burning pain or heartburn. This reflux occurs more than once every six months in roughly 1/3 of people. Gastrooesophageal reflux disease is a chronic form of the reflux where the sphincter at the top of the stomach is inefficient at keeping the stomach contents from entering the oesophagus. It can cause burning sensation and severe pain.
