Good news! You shouldn't worry about arthritis because it's not the reason for your pain. However, you should still see the doctor to find out why you're experiencing pain. You should maintain a healthy lifestyle, do sports, and take vitamins. This will reduce the possiblity of you having arthritis later in life.
