Unhappy Im 19 can i get arthritis?

Im 19 can i get arthritis? I feel like i am getting this in my back. My bones are weak from having 3 shockwaves treatments for kidney stones. For 1 1/2 ive had kidney stones and went thinking im getting another but the doctor didnt see anything but have bad stiffness in back. Am i too young for this? How do i stop this? Can arthritis spread? Im afraid please help!

Hello Holly12484,
first of all, there are many types of Arthritis and you can have it at any age. From what you describe, you have other health issues that can contribute to the "feeling" of Arthritis rather than the condition itself. Your kidney stones are a sign of something wrong or "out of whack". Are kidney stones common in your family? Your overall health condition, and things like weight, water intake, diet and nutrition and exercise can affect your production of kidney stones. Heredity is a big factor too.

I am not a doctor, but I have been around for a long time, and I suffer from Osteo-Arthritis in my right thumb... and a few other places. I have never had kidney stones, but I have had friends that have suffered greatly from having them. You are young, and I would like you to seek your doctors advise always. You don't need to worry. There are a lot of options for you...
