atonic dyspepsiaA condition characterised by a loss of tone in the digestive organs, with little or no appetite, often a loathing of food, and even sometimes nausea. After eating there is a sense of distension or of oppression in the stomach—sometimes with eructations, heartburn and other symptoms of labourious digestion—accompanied by a feeling of general uneasiness or listlessness, and a disposition to chilliness. This term is not commonly used in the working medical parlance.
