Dyspepsia is a common presenting complaint in primary care, and encompasses a range of symptoms including GORD, nausea, and epigastric pain.  Having an approach to these patients is vital given how commonly we see these symptoms, and Mike Burkitt joins me in this episode to provide a really useful overview of dyspepsia, and how we can approach this symptom in clinical practice.  Mike also gives his thoughts on what to do when the endoscopy comes back normal in a symptomatic patient.
