Is it possible for a young person have arthritus or bone problems?

I am almost 23 years old and for about 3 or 4 years i have had problems with bones and joints hurting. Myknees, hips, and ancles hurt really bad, expecially when it is cold out or raining. my back also hurts like all the time could that be associated?

  • Yep... pain could be caused be rheumatoid arthritis, Lyme's disease, deconditioning... any number of things. Best to talk to your doc to get to the bottom of it!!

  • I think its possible, but I would discuss this with a doctor. DH complains about things like this all the time; he takes something for joint health that he buys at GNC, but I would talk with you doctor before taking anything OTC. His is caused from not being kind to his joints in high school while playing baseball.

  • My Dd has had bursitis since she was a teenager, and her orthopedic has told her that her arthritis will only get worse as she ages. Working with a trainer to condition her tendons and joints helped immensely. (She was a very competitive athletein HS). Proper medical diagnosis and treatment plans is a must!
