Is there an Age range for Arthritis?

Hello I am a 26 year old female that has been suffering from chronic muscle and joint pain. Causes me to lose sleep, advil and Tylenol do not help. Sometimes chills are associated with the pain and even bad head aches. The aches are throughout my body, its like my bones feel fragile. Still trying to figure out what is wrong. Anyone that can help with some knowledge on Arthritis. Or if anyone thinks these symptoms are related to it? It does run in my family.

It can be arthritis, fibromyalgia, or any other health condition. To get the right diagnosis, it is best to have yourself checked by the doctor. Self-medication without knowing what really ails you might lead to more health problems.

Yes arthritis  runs in families.my father had rheumatoid  arthritis thankfully none of his children or grandchildren have shown any signs. My grandmother had severe osteoarthritis so I'm assuming  I got her genes.  I am 58 and I have been fighting arthritis  since my early 20's. I just had an implant to replace my big toe joint 10 days ago because arthritis  ate it up.get Checked out by a good Dr and have some tests run to find out what you really have. Good luck
