In brief: Unlikely
Weakness can have many causes including diseases of muscle, peripheral nerves, low thyroid function, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndromes, depression, iron deficiency anemia, to name a few.
A primary care physician can do some blood test screening and guide you to the correct diagnosis. Although MS can present with fatigue and true weakness, further testing will be needed here also.
