Answered by Seconmedic Expert

Functional dyspepsia is a gastrointestinal disorder characterized by frequent or persistent headaches, nausea, fullness and abdominal pain that do not have any underlying pathology. It is often referred to as indigestion, but can also be caused by other causes including psychological factors such as stress or anxiety.

The primary symptom of functional dyspepsia is recurring abdominal pain or discomfort in the upper abdomen area which may occur 1-4 hours after eating food and generally lasts for several days before it goes away on its own. Other common symptoms include: bloating, belching/flatulence, feeling overly full after meals and difficulty swallowing food.

In order to get rid of functional dyspepsia permanently one has to identify the root cause of the condition alongside with timely diagnosis from healthcare professionals. Functional dyspepsia can often be treated using lifestyle modifications and dietary changes alone without medication intervention, thus making it important for people suffering from this condition to take notice on how their daily habits might affect their health. This includes managing stress levels through meditation and/or yoga techniques; avoiding heavy meals as well as foods that are too spicy; limiting caffeine intake; exercising regularly; eating smaller meals throughout the day instead of three large ones – all these lifestyle changes when coupled with over-the-counter drugs like antacids & proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) play an instrumental role in helping people manage & cure this condition permanently over time.
