Abstract

We analyzed data collected from 134 patients (37 males and 97 females) with dizziness and/or vertigo who were confirmed to have orthostatic dysregulation (OD) based on a questionnaire survey between December 1990 and November 1994. The patients ranged in age from 10 to 80 years with a mean age of 42.5 years for males and 44.6 years for females. Patients with OD consulted our clinic more frequently in summer than in the other seasons.<BR>Orthostatic dizziness was the most common manifestation among the major symptoms of OD and was noted in 116 of 134 patients (86.6%). Fatigue was the most frequent complaint among the minor symptoms of OD and was noted in 97 of 134 patients (72.4%).<BR>OD was noted in 47 patients (35.1%) with dizziness or vertigo of unknown origin, in 22 (16.4%) of those with Meniere's disease, in 18 (13.4%) with dizziness or vertigo from central disorder, in 14 (10.4%) with hypotension, and 33 (24.6%) of those with other disorders.<BR>As for the positive rate on Schellong test, patients with OD and control subjects, showed 49.2% and 27.8%, respectively, and this difference was significant.<BR>These results suggest that autonomic imbalance suspected from the OD questionnaire and the Schellong test results probably affects the occurrence of vertigo and/or dizziness.
