On Saturday I finally recieved a decision from the DVLA it has taken 11months! They have decided that I can hold a driving licience for 1year and then 3months before it is due to expire.
Don’t get me wrong I am relieved that I can still drive but at the same time I am not dx with MS (although what I am experiencind has beed recognised as a problem with the central nervous system.) the reason I had to inform the DVLA was because I had been diagnosed as having mild sleep apnea which is treated with a CPAP machine successfully. I all so have Blespharospasm in my right eye which is treated with Botox injections. (Blespharospasm is when the nerve around the eye go into spasms your eye twitches alot).
The DVLA sent me to have a field of vision test which I was told at the time there was no problem. The same with the sleep apnea clinic as I did not drive for a living, it was mild and I was using the CPAP machine which they check your are by the SD card.
I do have dystonia, muscle spasm, cramps and twitches. Problems with my bladder, burning limbs and numbness. But none of these are listed that you need to inform the DVLA. I know they pulled my medical records, but they haven’t actually given a reason for what their decision has been based on. If I want to appeal I have to do so through the magistrates court ,so I guess I will go with, something else to worry about!
I wondered if anyone was in a similar situations.
