Non-ulcer dyspepsia is sometimes called functional dyspepsia. It means that no known cause can be found for the symptoms. That is, other causes for dyspepsia such as duodenal ulcer, stomach ulcer, acid reflux and oesophagitis, inflamed stomach (gastritis) and eosinophilic oesophagitis are not the cause. The inside of your gut looks normal if you have a test called a gastroscopy (endoscopy) – see below. It is the most common cause of dyspepsia.
For such conditions, the ICD-10-CM has a coding convention that requires the underlying condition be sequenced first followed by the manifestation. Wherever such a combination exists, there is a “use additional code” note at the etiology code, and a “code first” note at the manifestation code.
Stomach acids break down the mucosa, causing irritation and inflammation. This triggers the uncomfortable symptoms of indigestion. Most people with indigestion feel pain and discomfort in the stomach or chest.
Dyspepsia is persistent or recurring abdominal pain that’s centered in the upper abdomen and that lasts more than four weeks.

Sometimes the cause is a problem with the digestive tract, like an ulcer or gerd. Avoiding foods and situations that seem to cause it may help.
It may be useful to know that you have non-ulcer dyspepsia and not some other disease. However, you will have to accept that pain, discomfort and other dyspeptic symptoms are likely to come and go. Avoiding foods and situations that seem to cause it may help. Because indigestion can be a sign of a more serious problem, see your health care provider if it lasts for more than two weeks or if you have severe pain or other symptoms. Your health care provider may use x-rays, lab tests, and an upper endoscopy to diagnose the cause.
About 6 in 10 people who have repeated (recurring) bouts of dyspepsia have non-ulcer dyspepsia. Non-ulcer dyspepsia causes pain and sometimes other symptoms in your upper tummy (abdomen).

- Stomach acids break down the mucosa, causing irritation and inflammation.
