DVLA form advising MS

Hello!
Can anyone help in the completion of the DVLA form?

I have relapsing and remitting MS and I need to list the dates of relapses on this form.
I have had numbness since April that have moved to different areas. Should I list each time it moves as a relapse?
I would appreciate any advice, as a newbie I’m still learning 😱!’
Many thanks for your help…

@lisa_back , have a chat with your MS Nurse and ask them for details of any relapses. Use this information and it will be sure to tally with anything your Consultant may say to the DVLA.

There’s some details and definitions of relapses here :-

for future reference.

@lisa_back I agree entirely with @jen1973g that the less said the better.
I would stick entirely to what may be listed with your treating hospital as a formal relapse. Almost certainly will not reflect your actual symptoms, but that MS for you.
