Funny thing that osteo ... I thought it was coming on in my hands last couple of years as sometimes the pain is quite severe but a recent x-ray for some thing unrelated brought out the comment from the radiologist "no signs of arthritis".
Osteoartritis is weird. Pain doesn't show on X-ray. The degree of arthritis, as seen on X-ray, correlates poorly with the levels of pain. You could have a little arthritis, that doesn't show on X-ray (yet) and feel pain, or the X-ray might show quite a lot and you wouldn't feel a thing.

But for course the pain in your hands could be something else.
