Unusual: If there is a bacterial infection causing the synovitis, a fever will likely be present but even worse would be the severe pain in the hip. More commonly, synovitis is due to local irritation within the joint, such as a labral tear. The symptoms would be pain, some stiffness, and irritability of the hip with movement.
