Functional dyspepsia

The term dyspepsia includes a very wide range of symptoms that can occur in isolation or in combination:

  • localized pain or burning in the upper digestive tract
  • nausea, vomiting
  • postprandial fullness: feeling very full after eating
  • early satiety: feeling so full shortly after eating a small amount of food that you are unable to finish your meal
  • heartburn or acidity in the area of the sternum
  • need to burp

We call it functional dyspepsia when one or more of these symptoms are experienced at least once a week for at least 2 months, and these symptoms cannot be attributed to any medical condition.
