James, I am sorry to hear about all your troubles. I don't think they know yet whether its hereditary or not, although I am sure there is some relationship.

at the risk of sounding preachy, start doing the little things everyday. I found 4 stretches I do every morning and night and try to walk 3-4 days per week, I have found it is helping make my pain manageable and maintain a positive outlook on life.

All the best.
