Edit: I think I posted this in the wrong section, I didn't see the symptoms section at first. :(

I have been having pains in my hips for as long as I can remember(I am 18 now), and I remember incidences from when I was as young as 7 or 8 of running around and having one of my legs give out. Recently(for the past 6 months at least), the joints in both of my legs have been aching and are very very sore. The amount of pain varies, and sometimes when I wake up in the morning I can hardly move, and have to adjust myself to the pain of moving my legs.

I am a fairly active female, 130lbs and standing at 5'5", I don't smoke drink, or do any drugs, I don't like sodas or energy drinks, or anything with caffeine(caffeine makes me drowsy), and even if I did do those things now, I don't think it would be related because this has been going on for a while.

I went to see my doctor yesterday, and she seemed really concerned and told me she would call me for an appointment for an x-ray. She was about to say what she thinks I may have, but then she told me the name was really long and hard to pronounce(She's french, so I guess it's fair).

I'm really anxious and I really want to know what condition she was thinking of, because she's fairly sure it's what I have. I doubt it's arthritis because that is easy to say, and her english is fairly decent. I would like to hear about what it could be before my appointment, because I have no idea when it will be.

Also, since my doctor looked concerned, I'm concerned. I know that something's wrong, but I really hope it's easily fixed. :(
