Pain in hips. My lower back on the right side began to ache slightly and the ache moved into my hips, deep in the socket like a tooth ache but in the bone almost, it spread to my other hip and continued for the last 2 days. Only thing that helps is heat, like hot bath, today I was able to move around a little better but still have pain, my knees sometimes swell up and get hot to the touch, this has never happened in my hips before, I had a low grade fever off an on, maybe unrelated but I have a couple sores in my mouth and a couple knuckles on my hands hurt. My RA factor was tested a few months ago and everything was normal, I’ve also been tested for lupus and I have every symptom but the test comes back negative. I have severe reynaudes too. Also maybe unrelated, my urine always smells super strong like morning pee but worse. No matter how much water I drink. My C3 and C4 were off, ( complimentary system) but otherwise everything else is always normal.
My knees swelled up a few years ago to where I couldn’t walk and the pain was incredible for a couple days and it went away.
