MS can cause hip and knee pain due to muscle spasticity and weakness. However it is important to rule out other causes also like arthritis, osteoporosis, osteomalacia and spinal stenosis as they can all present as hip and knee pain.
Please discuss these possibilities with your treating doctor as it is only after a careful clinical exam that a diagnosis can be made with certainty.
