if it makes you feel any better, I am 27 and have been suffering with some kind of arthritis for a few years now. I haven't seen a dr about it for a real diagnosis, but I know it is it-all joints hurt and get VERY stiff if I sit a position for more than ten mins (if cross legged, my knees and ankles suffer) (if Knees are up to my chest, my knees and hips suffer) ( and don't get me started on my pain levels after sex-my hubby literally has to straighten me out my joints hurt so bad and get sooo stiff). I have it in all joints, diagnosed with it in my neck and back, but then have it in my wrists, hips, elbows, knees, ankles. I never drank a lot of milk, but did eat tons of cheese and I love broccoli. I was a cheerleader for seven years, and also did have a injury to both knees (hyper-extended both knees when I came down from a third toe touch)-plus I am a nurse asst and have been lifting, pushing, pulling, standing and walking up to twelve hours a day for nearly six years. I have just pushed the envelope too far this year and face a fusion of my lumbar spine and poss. surgery in my neck.
Well, sorry that was long and it didn't give you any advice or help, but wanted to let you know it is way common (my hubby has it REALLY bad in his knees, prob. from playing rugby, football and running long distance in high school)
Good luck to you!
