I am not sure I have MS but I have had pain in my hips and have noticed when I walk something has changed, I can't seem to walk increase my speed in walking. Other changes, are that my legs have felt weak or heavy at times. I must add that I have been diagnosed with Alkylosing Spondilitis years ago but only now am having problems. Thank you.
Pain in the hips is not a direct symptom of MS and will certainly cause you to walk more slowly. See what your doctor thinks; I am not sure why you should specifically be concerned about MS based on the information you’ve provided.
