In brief: Not Normal
If you have a tooth that hurts at age 18 then there is most likely something wrong with the tooth.
A loose tooth may be an indication of periodontal disease (a gum infection). Either way it means that you should have the tooth looked at by a dentist right away.

In brief: No
A permanent tooth only becomes because of a problem. These could be trauma, gum disease or an abscess.
