    Can anyone help me with postprandial epigastric pain and bloating. Would I just use epigastric pain and abdominal bloating, or is there a more specific code for the postprandial pain?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    789.06 (Epigastric pain) Is the only thing I can come up with. I assume it would be the location of the pain not what is causing the abdominal pain because I do not see where it allows for "due to". But then again Dyspepsia (536.8) looks good too. That also includes bloating. I hope these help you!
