Thanks for posting your query.
The symptoms you have are not likely to be related to MS. Most of the times it happens due to benign causes like Vitamin B 12 and Vitamin D3 deficiency. You can start with the appropriate supplements as suggested by your physician. In most of the cases an improvement is evident in 3-4 weeks.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

Thanks for writing again.
The pan in the back of legs could be due to vitamin D deficiency or electrolyte imbalance. MS is usually associated with generalized symptoms and loss of muscle strength.
You can get your Vitamin D levels checked and get the proper supplements prescribed accordingly.
For the knee pain you can start with mild pain killers like ibuprofen and a hot fomentation.
Vitamin B 12 level at 200 is slightly on a lower side of normal.
A complete physical examination will be helpful in proper diagnosis.
Hope my answer is helpful.
