If you regularly have a gut feeling, then you may be experiencing functional dyspepsia (also known as non-ulcer dyspepsia, pseudo-ulcer syndrome, pyloro-duodenal irritability, and gastritis), which the Canadian Society of Intestinal Research describes as a “chronic disorder of sensation and movement (peristalsis) in the upper digestive tract”.

Canadian Society of Intestinal Research notes that some doctors would have mistaken complaints about upper/middle abdominal pain as an ulcer, which are sores on the stomach lining that can bleed.
However, physicians can now rule that diagnosis out by using detailed barium X-rays or gastroscopy, according to the source. Functional dyspepsia doesn’t present evidence of a structural disease, although the symptoms will have lasted more 3-months or more, it adds.
