Will I need a speech therapist to help my swallowing problems from multiple sclerosis?

ANSWER

Your doctor might suggest that you see a speech therapist or a speech-language pathologist. She can figure out which part of your speech is affected and study your breathing control and way you move your lips, tongue, and other parts of your mouth.
