In brief: Many things!
Joints can be inflamed in an inflammatory arthritis.
Prior injuries causing joint instability can do this. The more joints involved, the more likely is is a primary rheumatic problem. See a rheumatology practitioner!

In brief: What else compared 2
Rheumatoid arthritis can start at any age.
Ghonorrhea can do this. Google it. The list is long. If hot and red see a doctor soon if it goes away on it's own that does not mean the problem is over.It can be deeper in the body and more dangerous.
