Increasing Cogwheel Movements

I'm a 30 year old man with a decent diet, get a normal amount of sleep etc and would be considered reletively healthy. However, I have 2 increasingly concerning health worries. 1) I have increasingly ratchety cogweel movements when relaxing any and every muscle in my body. Whether moving my wrists, ankles, arms... you name it. I probably first noticed it about 5 years ago in my legs when walking down some stairs. Since then it has gotten more noticeable and concerning for me. Especially as seems to mostly be associated with Parkinsons, which if I have at this age does not fill me with much hope for the future. I did see my GP about this about a year and a half ago who seemed puzzled by it but took bloods to test for something and apparently it came back negative do no answers, sorry i can't be more specific. (I'm not sure they know half the time or are overly bothered) 2) In addition to my wonderfully shaky movement all my joints creek, click, catch, crunch, lock and grind. Mostly my knees, elbows, shoulders and hips but everything. This has been a feature for about 6 or 7 years and steadily gets worse as time goes by. I did see a doc a few years back who took bloods and ruled out arthritis which my dad has quite bad (osteo) Doc diagnosed me with clicky joints which was a relevation! God i sound like a right hypercondriac! Anyway I think i've given up on doctors so just wanted to find out if anyone  shared a similar story or had any answer as to what it might me. Hopefully nothing too sinister. Don't feel like I should be feeling like an old man at 30 and kinda worried about what i may be like in a few years time. Any advise welcome thanks
