Everyday, ordinary life is challenging enough if you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Add the obligations, deadlines, family dynamics, food focus, and travel issues that are associated with the holiday season, and it can be easy to feel anxious and overwhelmed. This busy time can also be one of great joy, as you get to experience the security of tradition, the warmth of being with loved ones, and the time to reconnect with spiritual roots. In order to achieve a healthy balance, self care becomes essential.
Fact Sheet: Treating Functional Dyspepsia545
Dyspepsia is a common disorder that affects up to 30% of the general population. Symptoms of dyspepsia include upper abdominal pain or discomfort and frequently include symptoms of burning, pressure, or fullness often, but not necessarily, related to meals. Other common symptoms include early feeling of fullness (satiety), nausea, belching, and bloating. While dyspeptic symptoms may develop due to diseases such as peptic
ulcer or gastritis, the vast majority of patients with dyspeptic symptoms are ultimately diagnosed as having functional dyspepsia.Topics: bloating, diagnosis, Diet, Foods, Dyspepsia, pain in upper abdomen or chest, eating, food, gas, nausea
