Digestive and Bowel Disorders Answer A20493
Hi,welcome to ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
Your symptoms might be due to indigestion and the two most common causes of indigestion are GERD and functional dyspepsia. The motor dysfunction of stomach can cause delayed emptying of stomach leading to symptoms like bloating, fullness, nausea and early satiety. Patients with disturbed gastric sensory function may experience discomfort with stomach distension to lower pressure as compared to healthy people thus leading to functional dyspepsia and inability to tolerate small meals. As most indigestion and gas like feeling is caused by GERD or functional dyspepsia, medications that reduce gastric acid secretion and stimulate motility may be initiated in consultation with your physician .
Hope this helps. Take care.
