Hi, I'm new to this site, and was hoping other people out there get this as I feel like I am going mad. I get panic attacks driving on the motorway and also dual carriageways. I feel sure that I am going to crash, and have to really breath through it and get whoever is in the car with me to distract me from the feeling. I've just seen on the NHS website that you are supposed to tell DVLA of panic disorder (well I've not been diagnosed yet, I am yet to go to the Drs) as it may mean you have your licence revoked, is that correct? When I go on the DVLA site it doesn't mention panic disorder as a medical condition that needs to be referred to them. Now I am worried about going to the Dr as he may say I can no longer drive. I'm fine if I drive locally, just not on roads where cars are doing 70/80 miles an hour! In fact I feel happy driving on normal roads.
I don't get panic attacks anywhere else.
Does anyone else have this? Have they reported it to the DVLA? Any help would be massively wonderful.
