Our expert says:
Osteoporosis is a painless disease and does not affect the joints. A bone mineral test is also not indicated in your age group unless you have risk factors to develop osteoporosis. Milk will also not benefit your joints, but to prevent osteoporosis in later life it is good that you ensure a daily calcium intake of 1000 mg/day. If your joints are bothering you, ask your doctor to refer you to a rheumatologist who can do an examination of your joints.
