It consists of various symptoms in the upper abdomen near the ribs, such as fullness, discomfort, early satiation, bloating, heartburn, nausea, vomiting or epigastric pain. Some patients experience a lack of appetite or weight loss. Initial evaluation should focus on the identification and treatment of potential causes of dyspepsia.
