What kind of specialists should I see for my multiple sclerosis (MS)?

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a multifactorial disease, meaning that it can create many symptoms. Therefore, you should ideally have a team of specialists to address all the individual factors that your disease entails. This not only includes a neurologist specializing in MS, but also an internist who is familiar with the disease, a physical and occupational therapist to deal with mobility issues, and a speech language pathologist to assist with speech and swallowing issues. Depending on the specifics of your MS you may also need a urologist, a gynecologist, a psychiatrist, a social worker and an orthopedist. These people should be chosen with specific consideration of their knowledge of MS.
