i came close cg. told my doc last fall that some probs i'd had over the summer were resolving. i could see everything happening around me but i felt like i wasn't able to put it all together fast enough to be confident crossing an intersection, and it was worse at higher speeds. the doc said, if this happens again... (ominous pause) I'M GOING TO HAVE TO PULL YOUR LICENSE
oh okay it wasn't that dramatic but i was
around that time i made a significant difference to some issues with my throat, when i met a pharmacist who recommended magnesium
in roughly the same time period i asked for some mineral tests and found a rather shocking zinc deficiency worse than the usual for ms, and consistent with all the years of veganism.
since i have started taking magnesium and corrected the zinc deficiency i have not felt any issues with driving at all. i don't know whether it was one, or the other, or the combo, but i feel much better.
i used to be able to feel it physically sort of like a stretching pull behind my left eye when the visual signal wasn't quite getting through to comprehension. i haven't felt that in about a year.
i have never had dizziness to interfere with driving that must be really scary. the only other issues i had were right around dx time, trying to drive all leaned to one side, because of the post lumbar puncture postural headache, trying to get the right pedal when you have to peer down at your feet to see where they're heading... it's not fun.
all that mineral stuff aside, cognitive function is really aided by b-complex. do you already take b-complex? if not you might find it will help with the dizziness, especially b1. if you do, how much?
b12 really helps with cognition too. it's just an all around good complex for ms-ers and omega 3s too, brain likey
