Dee, I found this info on a website after reading your above comment. I thought it might be of help to you. "Although the symptoms may resemble those of peptic ulcer disease, functional nonulcer dyspepsia occurs without demonstrable objective findings. The symptom history serves to distinguish it from the retrosternal burning discomfort of heartburn or gastroesophageal reflex disease and from biliary colic. Similarly, the irritable bowel syndrome may be differentiated by its predominance of lower abdominal symptoms, an alteration in bowel habits, and symptoms associated with defecation."
