In brief: Genetic?
Hereditary spastic pareplegia is the name given to a mainly motor disability often in lower extremities slowly progressive with a geographical distribution.
The condition often does not cause sensory or bladder problems and all tests including mri, CSF studies B12 levels etc are normal some of these cases have antibodies to htlv 1 viruses in the blood or cerebrospinal fluid.

In brief: Genetic disorder
This is a slowly progressive usually autosomal dominant (70%) disorder causing progressive weakness and spasticity (tightness and spasms) in the legs.
While there is no specific cure, meds can alleviate symptoms, and physical and occupational therapies may help.
