Waking up with stiff joints

I'm 23 years old. I think I'm in pretty good shape (I run 5 miles every other day). But for the past week or so I've been waking up with stiff joints. In my knees, elbows, and today I even feel stiff joints in my fingers.

I googled around and a lot of the answers include arthritis. That can't be right, can it?

Try taking a glucosamine supplement for about two weeks and see if it helps any bit. Any longer and you might want to consult a doctor.

I displayed all of the symptoms of severe arthritis for many years. Eventually, it was discovered that I have a severe Vitamin D deficiency. I take large dose supplements every day. My symptoms were gone within a month of taking the supplements. Try taking 2000 IU's per day and get more sun and see if that helps.

(So says my doctors: You should be taking 1000 IU's in the summer and 2000 IU's in the winter anyhow, assuming that you're caucasian. If you're a darker skinned race, you should be taking more because the darker pigmentation of your skin protects you from the sun, but also makes it more difficult for you to absorb the vit D from its rays.)

I run in the sun 2 days a week, 5 miles each. Plus I drink 2 large glasses (12 oz) of milk per day (one at breakfast, one after working out). I don't think it's a vitamin D deficiency.

I might try the glucosamine thing. This stiff joint thing has been going on for a week, and I'm getting a bit anxious about it.

Uh, was he correct? And what did that doctor prescribe or recommend to mitigate/cure it?

Even if you're only 23, maybe you're just 'getting old'

Some people age faster than others. Did you have a mean ol beard when you were 15 and never got carded?

dietary changes can really make a difference, there are lists online of foods that promote joint health, and that which can repair damage
