See your doctor.: You should make an appointment for your 11 year old with a pediatrician very soon as this could be more serious than just knee and hip pain.

See rheumatologist: These long standing problems should be evaluated by a pediatric rheumatologist. They will be able to do a good physical exam and some screening blood tests to help figure out what is going with your daughter. You could start with your pediatrician if they are comfortable ordering the initial testing, but they may choose to refer.
