Walking Out of My Hip

Am I the only one who has this feeling: You're walking along, everything's cool, but then you take a step, your pelvis opens up to the side just a little too much, and your hip feels like it's going to pop out of socket? Sometimes, it happens a couple of times in one stretch of walking, and it's scary, because what if your hip really did pop out of its socket? What the heck would you do then?

Yeah, that happens to me. Maybe every couple of months I'll have a day or two where one of my hip joints doesn't seem to be connecting with my leg quite right. Sometimes I actually stumble. It doesn't really hurt; it's just a twinge that feels wrong. I just assume I slept at an awkward angle or exercised too hard. But maybe it's *genetic*!

That happens to me too, and it scares me. Also, I often get weird phantom pains in my joints, especially my wrists. That worries me a lot, since my mom has rheumatoid arthritis, and there might be a good chance I could get it, too...
