I drive without issues, I don't find that Fibro effects my ability at all to drive - what affects my ability to drive the most is my Diabetes and Dystonia (diabetes because of the rules and regulations around at what numbers i am legally allowed to drive between) and my Dystonia as it causes shaking and coordination issues which can effect my ability to apply the gas properly (which is why I've got an adaptive driving device added to my vehicle to solve that issue in general).

The only that really affects me the most when driving is my feet. Long road trips or doing door dash for a few hours is my limit. My lower back too. Positive vibes and happy Easter ๐Ÿ‡!!

I'm the same stiff neck and shoulders and don't drive at night because of the glare from headlights. If I'm doing a long journey I'm the same as Gogs and my hands hurt from gripping. My feet and back get stiff and almost fall over getting out. It's worth it for a fun day out but pay for it the next day.
