Patients with Meniere’s disease (MD) and those with benign positional paroxysmal vertigo (BPPV) have higher average scores for anxiety and depression and higher severity of anxiety and depression than controls, according to a study published in the American Journal of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Medicine and Surgery. Shadman Nemati, MD, and colleagues conducted a case-control study of 177 individuals aged 18-65 to examine the frequency of anxiety and depression in patients with MD compared with healthy controls and patients with BPPV. The average anxiety score and anxiety severity were higher in the MD versus BPPV group, whereas only severity was higher in the MD versus BPPV group in the case of depression. The impacts of MD and BPPV were significant on anxiety compared with the control group after controlling for underlying variables.
