The joint of my left hip hurts. It doesn't hurt all the time, just when I move in certain ways. Fortunately, sitting down doesn't trigger any pain, but getting into the car iterates through several positions that do satisfy my hip's criteria for causing me to yelp. The most annoying thing, though, is that it's difficult to find a sleeping position where it's not causing me grief. I managed to nod off last night, only take wake up with no feeling in my left arm because of how I'd been sleeping on it...

This is something that's been happening on and off for the past 10 years. Usually, it's my left hip, but occasionally it's my right. It'll be like this for a few days, then one morning I'll wake up and it'll be gone. I've no idea what causes it: it can happen in Winter as well as Summer, dry weather as well as wet weather, when I've been walking miles or when I've been completely sedentary. One of these days I'll get around to asking a doctor about it, but if I phoned up now and made an appointment then by the time I actually got to see a physician it would almost certainly have gone.

I suppose it's just one of those wear-and-tear things that happen as you get older. I don't feel old, though!

Oh well, I guess I'd better write to Sven-Göran Eriksson and warn him I may be unavailable for England's next international.
