from 'with difficulty,' and 'I concoct.' Limosis Dyspepsia, Anorexia, Apepsia, Bradypepsia, Gastroataxia, Digestio depravata seu difficilis seu Iaesa, Gastro-atonia, Concoctio tarda, Stomachi resolutio, Cruditas, Passio stomachica, Dyspepsy, Indigestion, Difficulty of Digestion. A state of the stomach, in which its functions are disturbed, without the presence of other diseases, or when, if other diseases be present, they are of but minor importance. The symptoms of dyspepsia are very various. Those affecting the stomach itself are:- loss of appetite: nausea; pain in the epigastrium or hypochondrium; heart-burn; sense of fulness, or weight in the stomach; acrid or fetid eructations; pyrosis, and sense of fluttering or sinking at the pit of the stomach. The sympathetic affections are of the most diversified character. Dyspepsia, being generally of functional nature, is devoid of danger. When arising from disease of the stomach itself, it is, of course, more serious. It is usually dependent on irregularity of living; either in the quantity or quality of the food taken: and the most successful treatment is, to put the patient on a diet easy of digestion; to combat the causes, where such are apparent; and, by proper remedies and regimen, to strengthen the system in every practicable manner. A great error exists in regarding it as always a disease of debility. It is often connected with an inflammatory or subinflaramatory condition of the mucous lining of the stomach, and of course a very different plan of treatment is required in the two cases. Dyspepsia is often attended with too great secretion of the gastric acids; but, on other occasions, they would appear to be too small in quantity, so as to constitute alkaline indigestion or neutral indigestion.
