Dyspepsia

Dyspepsia (dispepsia) (from the Greek (Dys-), meaning hard or difficult, and (Pepsi), meaning digestion) refers to disorders of the stomach involving symptoms such as heartburn, nausea, pain, or general discomfort.

Symptoms of dyspepsia, heartburn and indigestion can include mild discomfort in the upper part of the abdomen, a burning sensation in and around the breastbone, and up into the throat, and feeling full and bloated after meals. Sometimes indigestion and heartburn sufferers can feel nauseous and there may be vomiting or retching, caused by the dyspepsia.

Many cases of dyspepsia are caused by stomach ulcers which may be diagnosed with a barium meal test or a gastroscopy. In some situations, for example, stomach ulcers, high levels of gastric acid may irritate the stomach lining and cause dyspeptic symptoms. Dyspepsia may also occur as a side effect from drugs treating other diseases.

Always seek professional mediacal help and advice from your doctor or pharmacist for any dyspepsia, indigestion and heartburn symptoms you are worried about. Disclaimer.

Dyspepsia refers to disorders of the stomach involving symptoms such as heartburn, indigestion, nausea, pain, or general discomfort.

Dysepsia may have physical causes, such as stomach ulcers and the side effects of medication but it can also occur as a reaction to stress or other mental health issues.

Many cases of dyspepsia are caused by stomach ulcers which are diagnosed with a barium meal test or gastroscopy. Most cases of ulcer dyspepsia are caused by Helicobacter pylori infection. However, some studies also suggest non-ulcer dyspepsia may be resolved from eradicating this infection. In some situations (such as in ulcers), high levels of gastric acid may irritate the stomach lining and cause dyspeptic symptoms.
