INTRODUCTION

The symptoms of functional dyspepsia in affected individuals include a burning sensation in the stomach, bloating, burping, nausea (after meals), an early feeling of fullness (satiety), and stomach pain. Your doctor may advise you to take relevant tests to evaluate and understand your existing condition.
