In the view point of Traditional Iranian Medicine (TIM), many diseases in different organs of the body result from the foods and drinks, and also the gastrointestinal (GI) system disorders. Therefore, diseases of stomach as one of the most important parts of the GI system are of great importance. Gastric pain is one of these conditions, for which the physiopathology with regard to the quality of pain and its relationship with eating and other symptoms have been well defined in the TIM. The three major causes of gastric pain mentioned in the textbooks of the TIM are dystemperament, tafarroghe ettesal, or both and some treatments and strategies have been provided for treatment of each of these causes and pain relief. In the TIM references, the causes of gastric pain, which seems to be functional in many cases, have been defined and methods of treatment have been specified. Also, some hypotheses have been proposed for the underlying causes of functional gastric pain in modern medicine. In the current study, the causes of gastric pain in the TIM references were investigated, and were compared versus dyspepsia with the dominant symptom of pain in modern medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Keywords: Traditional Iranian Medicine; Dystemperament; Gastric pain; Painful dyspepsia; Traditional Chinese Medicine.
