See details: At age 24, get the problem properly evaluated. Natural remedies are generally worthless especially if there is inflammation. Glucosamine may possibly help osteoarthritis but has not value for inflammation.

Inflammation: Use a good quality purified omega, not just an impure one that is cheap. Coq10 is a good antioxidant. Neither can eliminate pain.
