That's a stretch: That's quite a leap: From a tight knee, tingly hands and a stiff neck to primary progressive MS in one jump. The likelihood that those symptoms add up to MS instead of other more humdrum ailments (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome) is extremely remote. If you can't stop worrying and/or want face-to-face reassurance, a neurologist is the specialist to see.

You may or may not: Have primary progressive MS, and based on your description, would recommend a visit to a neurologist to see if you have carpal tunnel syndrome and cervical spondylosis instead of MS.
