Rheumatoid Arthritis: Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis in the Hip Print E-mail

Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis in the hip typically include arthritis pain and loss of motion. Rheumatoid arthritis is a symmetrical disease, meaning that both sides of the body are affected similarly. For example, you will most likely feel arthritis pain in both of your hips. In addition, you may notice your hip fixed in a slightly bent position so when you are walking or standing, your pelvis has to tilt forward.

Other common symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis in the hip include:

  • Arthritis pain felt down the leg, at the knee or in the groin area
  • Loss of motion
  • Lower back pain

If you have rheumatoid arthritis in the hip, you will most likely have one or more of the other prevalent symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis such as:

  • Swelling and pain in one or more joints, lasting six weeks or more
  • Fatigue and/or weakness
  • Stiffness following periods of immobility which gradually improves with movement
  • General sickness, mild fevers, anemia and weight loss
  • Fluid accumulation, especially around the ankles

Only a physician can make a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. If you think you have any of these symptoms, please consult with your doctor.
