Is it important to have a team to help deal with multiple sclerosis?

ANSWER

If you've just been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, you’ll need to work with your doctor to put together a team of support. You may already have a bunch of doctors and other health care providers at an MS center.

Either way, it can be confusing and overwhelming to figure out all it takes to manage your MS care, especially if the task falls on your shoulders. Teamwork is even more important if your symptoms change or your disease gets worse.
