Heart attack: Dyspepsia can be a warning sign of the condition – what is it?

What is dyspepsia?

A condition characterised by upper abdominal symptoms that may include pain or discomfort, bloating, feeling of fullness with very little intake of food , feeling of unusual fullness following meals, nausea, loss of appetite, heartburn, regurgitation of food or acid, and belching, said Medicine Net.

The site continued: “The term dyspepsia is often used for these symptoms when they are not typical of a well-described disease (for example, gastrointestinal reflux) and the cause is not clear.

“After a cause for the symptoms has been determined, the term dyspepsia is usually dropped in favour of a more specific diagnosis.”
