What causes heartburn and indigestion?

Indigestion is commonly caused by acid from your stomach irritating your stomach lining or throat (acid reflux). This can be caused or made worse by certain types of food and drink. 
Heartburn is a burning feeling in the chest that is caused by stomach acid travelling up towards the throat (acid reflux). If it is a recurring problem, it's called gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD).
