Lesions on Brain Vs. Brain Stem

Is there a difference in having lesions on the brain stem vs the brain?

My MRI shows I have lesions in both area's.

MS and Driving....

Being a bus driver, I knew when I presented my dizziness and cognitive dysfunctions to the Dr. I'd be told not to drive.

I was wondering if anyone has had their licensed pulled by their Dr or stopped driving due to MS?

Both the neuro and family Dr. have told me "No driving." Of course, I follow their advice I'd never put anyone else in danger, especially with the way I feel.

I'm just wondering ...
