It could be many things from very benign arthritis to something like Lyme Disease. The moral is you need to go get it checked out to know for sure. There are hundreds of potential causes...you just need to see which one to know what to do/expect.

In brief: A systemic arthritis

Sort of a confusing presentation.
From the time of worsening it sounds like plain old osteoarthritis but from the wide distribution it sounds like a systemic origin like rheumatoid, systemic lupus or paget's disease. Widespread joint pain can also occur with hiv/aids, hepatits c or even gout. You need lab work, x-rays and a good history and physical by a doctor to sort this pain.
