Can't Fully Straighten Knee

Arthritis problem: Arthritis is a very general term that just means inflammation of a joint and that is exactly what you have. It could be from infection, trauma, neoplasm or autoimmune-type(rheumatoid) but, you really should not have any of these problems at the age of 21.
