It is a commonly reported symptom and is sometimes associated with distension, or the visible increase in the width of the area between your hips and chest (abdominal girth).

    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
