I agree with the thought that maybe arthritis, especially since it feels warm to the touch. about the hip pain.....I have that too but only the right hip, It comes and goes but when it is here it hurts like the dickens. Your rheumy will probably run some bloodwork to check for arthritis. Let us know what the outcome is.
