    Have you been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis by a consultant at a hospital. It seems highly unlikely that is what you have at your age. Osteoarthritis is degeneration of the joint over time and is not curable. I am not an expert but I have had septic arthritis as a child. Lots of symptoms can be similar to other things. I would ask for a referal to a consultant and wait for a proper diagnosis, you are best not to google your symptoms as this can cause confusion and anxiety. I hope you soon find out what is wrong and get treatment. In the meantime don't overdo things.

      Osteoarthritis can happen at any age especially if there was an injury or it runs in the family. I started to have OA in my hands in my 30's now I'm 40 and my hip is bad, lots of pain. I agree to what you said about the Internet and getting someone specialist to have a look.
