I have hypermobility, dr said it could lead to early osteoarthritis. I'm having pain and stiffness in my knees and shoulders. Could this be the start?

In brief: Yes to a degree

Since you have hypermobility you have increase wear and tear. This can lead to earlier musculoskeletal joint damage.
At the same token staying in good shape, exercising, continuing enhancing muscle tone all are helpful in the long term
