You don't have arthritis

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. 

You should see the doctor

It seems that you might actually have arthritis. Be sure to consult the doctor at the first opportunity. After an overall  examination, you'll have to do a blood test and have your bones X-rayed. Remember that you should treat this problem instead of ignoring it!
