Be seen: Unusual in a 22 year old, presumably with no known history of injury and no knownedical problems. One of the more common causes would be some form of inflammatory arthritis such as rheumatoid arthritis, for example. Not that you have that, but it would be wise to be seen to establish the diagnosis.
