Thank you for asking

Age of 23 is too young to lose hope with arthralgia. Seek a rheumatologist and let them sort the cause out of this degeneration. It needs a little clinical correlation. Physiotherapy, conservative therapies and surgeries if need be are likely and should resolve the issue.

Get a rheumatologist or spine specialist for further correlation.

Take care
