A cross sectional study design and a convenient type of sampling was used to recruit the participants. A total of 36 participants in age range of (18–60 years of age) who reported to have dizziness or vertigo for at least three months of period and who knew to read and write in kannada language participated. The overall questionnaire was found to have an internal consistency α = 0.935 on cronbach’s alpha test and for test retest reliability (r = 0.988) on intra-class correlation coefficient measure. The present studies provide International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health based questionnaire in kannada which can be used in the clinical set up to assess the quality of life (QOL) in individuals with Vertigo or Dizziness. It will also help to understand the impact of dizziness on QOL from individual’s perspective.
