Driving and MS

Posted on May 25, 2018

For people with multiple sclerosis who are considering whether to give up driving, there are many questions and concerns. It can be a difficult decision. Not driving can result in isolation and the need to rely on help from others. It can help to talk about it with other people in your shoes.

On MyMSTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with multiple sclerosis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Driving is one of the most-discussed subjects.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about driving:

Since diagnosis does anybody else feel like they have three full-time overnight jobs when driving?

Been having some issues lately involving what I can only describe as brain overload when driving, especially in heavy traffic and faster roads. I mentioned it to my MS nurse and now I'm worried that my license will be taken away. Has anyone been in a similar situation? What happened?

Does your right foot tap by itself while driving?

Here are some conversations about driving:

I saw what you posted that you had been approached because you park in the disabled spot, it’s okay, I get yelled at too, when I was driving my car, had my disable pass on but still yelled at.

Working with an attorney for SSD. Today was exhausting. Having trouble walking and driving due to muscle spasms.

Driving 10 hours through pouring rain! I've learned to appreciate driving, easier than walking.

Can you relate?

Have another topic you'd like to discuss or explore? Go to MyMSTeam today and start the conversation. You'll be surprised just how many others may share similar stories.

Feel free to ask a question here.
