In brief: Yes anyone can, but-
Everyone will start losing bone density usually after their 20's.
However, not everyone will get osteoporosis (bone loss to the point of being at higher risk for hip or back factures.) how quickly you lose it will depend on gender, family history, race, medications taken (especially corticosteroids), weight bearing exercises performed in the past and performing now, etc.

In brief: Yes
Though if you have it at age 22 this is not normal.
Talk to your doctor.
