Photophobia Linked to Panic Disorder
A study presented here at the 27th European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) Congress showed that photophobia, defined as extreme sensitivity to light, was significantly more prevalent among adult participants who had been diagnosed with panic disorder than among matched peers who were without the disorder. In addition, there was a significantly positive correlation between photophobia and panic disorder scores.
@rajdeep The photophobia scores were three times higher for those with panic disorder than for the controls, on average. This seems to contribute to the etio-pathogenesis of the disorder and also to affect the course and response to therapy
