Defining Dyspepsia

Dyspepsia is a symptom and not a diagnosis. It can be broadly defined as pain or discomfort centered in the upper abdomen. "Centered" refers to symptoms chiefly in or around the midline and not the left or right upper quadrants. "Discomfort" refers to unpleasant feelings that stop short of being painful, including upper abdominal fullness, early satiety, bloating, nausea, and retching or vomiting. importantly, dyspeptic symptoms are not associated with altered bowel habits, but it is recognized that dyspepsia and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) frequently coexist.
