Can Sinus Drainage Cause Indigestion?

Answer

The main cause of sinus drainage is mucus. When excess mucus builds up in the nose it can run down through the back of the neck and cause sinus drainage. However, sinus drainage is not a cause of indigestion. Indigestion is caused by eating spicy foods, drinking excess alcohol, eating too fast, or eating too much. Additionally, indigestion can be caused by smoking and taking in too much caffeine. If you suffer from severe bouts of indigestion, you should contact your physician.
