In brief: Possibly
Unfortunately, your description of your complaints is too vague to say much about the diagnostic possibilities in your case.
Arthritis is a very common cause of joint pain and loss of strength in many joints, especially in older patients or in patients with prior injuries. See your doctor if you have concerns. An examination and x-ray can detect arthritis.
