Have you had Physio? I would imagine that would help define which too. But either way build up muscles and core strength which will help.
If it's any reassurance you may well show signs of early degenerative changes, arthritis, but you may find you aren't affected any,ore than you are now and that a few relatively minor changes can carry on happily for a long time yet.
I'm not a Physio but work in a Physio clinic. You'd be surprised how many people I see who come in with no hope and after a while (it's not quick fix and you do have to do the exercises they give you) they are different people.
Ask your gp, or if you are in a position to do it look for private Physio clinics near you. You may be amazed at what a difference it can make.
Don't let the worry of it get to you, pain likes stress, and will find any weak points and make them a million times worse.
