Resumo

Exploring emotional aspects commonly associated with the symptom of dizziness is essential for a better understanding and prognosis of vestibular disorder, once it is known that dizziness can be associate as a cause or consequence from psychological disorders. The aim of this study was to analyse the emotional impact caused by dizziness/vertigo symptom in vestibulopathic patients comparing two protocols: Dizziness Handicap Inventory (DHI) and Questionário de Impacto Emocional da Vertigem (CIEV). We concluded that both questionnaires can be used to evalute the impact of dizziness in patients' quality of life, but they explore different aspects being considered complementary during the diagnosis and for a better prognosis.
