I was jogging with my trainer yesterday when I suddenly had a crunching, tearing sensation in my left hip. While there was no pain, the joint felt really loose compared to what it normally does, and I suddenly had a whole lot more flexibility in the joint than I have had since I was a child.
Just for safety's sake, I went to get my hip x-rayed today and found out all the mechanical parts are in place and (oddly enough) showed less arthritis in the joint than had been there for years previously and the adhesions that had been there from a prior injury seemed to have disappeared.
Not sure what to make of all this, but I do know my walking gait has changed a bit and I am going to have to adapt to the extended range of motion by strengthening the muscles around the joint that were previously unused...hmmmm!
