Thanks for posting your query.

Well looking into your problem it doesnt seem to be rheumatoid arthritis related issue . You injured your hip by twisting it that led to the pain . I advise you to consult an orthopaedic surgeon and get your hip evaluated for same so that it is clear that it is just a muscle injury or there is more to the problem, probably an X Ray of the joint needs to be done. Regarding your sensation of cold fluid running down it sounds non specific and first you should sort out your hip problem . Be in touch with your rheumatologist for regular assessment of disease activity.

Wish you good health.
Take care.
