Hi everyone...and Happy Holidays! 
For the past year and a half I've been experiencing pain mainly in my hips and knees.  Sometime the pain is in my shoulders and ankles as well!  I don't take any medicine..because I'm not one who likes to take pills.  The pain at times gets really bad....mainly my hips and knees.  I like to walk when the weather is nice outside...but within 30 feels like my hips are rubbing bone to bone!  I can't kneel very long at church...because it hurts to get up.  Reason I'm concerned is because I'm only 25!  Maybe I'm just being to worried....I don't know!  I just have a feeling its some sort of arthritis....and I'm not really happy about that!  If anyone has experienced some of these symptoms.....let me know what you know!  Thanks!

Happy Holidays to you too!
Sounds to me (and trust me I'm no expert) that you should go see your doctor, or a rhuematologist.   Sounds like arthritis, and if it is I believe it will only get worse over time not better.
I am 34 ( so not as young as you but close) and know how having arthritis sounds scary,and kinda unreal at our age.  I walk my son to school on nice weather mornings, and we get half way there and my knees and hips start to ache....and the walk back home is awful.  But  I try to make sure I walk anyway.
Why not go see a doctor and see if they can help? Good luck.

Thanks TayIsa!! I actually did have my hips x-rayed....and haven't heard anything yet! Just have to wait and see! I figured it was arthritis....and lately I've had a lot of stress with I guess I'm hoping once I graduate in May.....some of the pain will reside. I have a feeling it won't though, because as I'm typing this up and not really under stress........and.....I'm in pain! Thanks again for your feedback!!!
