I’ve been newly diagnosed only a few days ago with MS, following two new lesions on my head scan. I am awaiting to be seen by the MS specialist nurse to discuss the best treatment plan for me. I was told by the neurologist consultant that I needed to let the DVLA know but when I’ve looked at the form I need to fill in, I currently can’t answer most of the questions that they ask as I’m not currently being treated. I also have no ‘formal’ diagnosis as in any paperwork and im not sure if the GP will have any paperwork from the consultant yet.
Any ideas of what I should be doing? Should I fill in the DVLA for as I can now then send an up to date form when I start my treatment? Can I still drive legally in the meantime? I’m currently feeling okay and obviously wouldn’t drive if I didn’t feel up to it but I’m worried about driving to work on Monday.
Also how long is it normally between your diagnosis and seeing the MS nurse?
Sorry for all the questions but it’s stuff I didn’t really think about when the consultant gave me the news a few days ago.
