Introduction: Non-motor symptoms are an essential cause of comorbidity in generalized and focal dystonia. However, there are few studies on dystonia involving the craniofacial regions. Methods: We studied non-motor symptoms in patients with oromandibular dystonia (OMD) and Meige syndrome using a questionnaire, and validated instruments for depression, anxiety, REM behaviour disorder, restless leg syndrome, sleep quality, excessive daytime sleepiness, and self-esteem. The severity of dystonia and blepharospasm was also studied. Results: Nineteen patients with OMD were recruited into the study. Among patients with OMD, depression was seen in 63.6% (n = 7), sleep impairment in 27.3% (n = 3), excessive daytime sleepiness in 27.3% (n = 3), and poor self- esteem in 18.2% (n = 2) of the patients. Among patients with Meige syndrome, depression was seen in 37.5% (n = 3), sleep impairment in 12.5% (n = 1), excessive daytime sleepiness in 25% (n = 2), low self-esteem in 25% (n = 2) of the patients. Conclusion: This study highlights the significant frequency of depression and sleep disturbances in patients with idiopathic OMD and Meige syndrome.
