I overate last night and now have indigestion. What are some ways to relieve indigestion?

Clean diet: I recommend plenty of water, fruits, vegetables, and consider tums, (calcium carbonate) or potentially alka-seltzer after clearning it with your doctor. If it persists more than a few days, I would highly recommend seeing a physician to make sure it's not something more serious. There are other medications like proton pump inhibitors or h2 blockers that may help but see your physician first.

The: The pain you are describing except for the pain in your ears is consistent with acid reflux. However heart issues (heart attack, angina) often presents in a similar way. For that reason, it is important to see your doctor. An ekg will be done to determine if the heart is involved. Other testing will be done based on what your doctor feels is the cause of your symptoms. The pain in your ears may be reffered pain or could actually signify a problem in the ear. This will need to be investigated as well. Best of luck.

Indigestion: Please see your Primary doctor as soon as you can. He/she will go through your issues, examine you, and order labs. If your doctor is comfortable with the results that came back from testing, relax. If you are not comfortable please have a family or friend refer you to a different doctor. Please keep me posted.

I recently started changed my diet to a more vegetarian based one, but find I am now getting heartburn quite often after meals. Help?

GERD: Gerd, or acid reflux, can be triggered by many different things. A healthy change in your diet would likely not cause this to occur, although it is possible. If you have frequent heartburn, namely more than once per week, I would seek an evaluation by a gastroenterologist to make sure nothing else is going on.
