...the day I finally manage to persuade my doctor to x-ray my painful hip that has been hurting for nigh on 4 years, my hip stops hurting and my shoulder starts up?
It reminds me of the time I went to see an infertility doctor, only to be told I was pregnant. Or the time I stayed in all day for a delivery, only to miss the guy when I popped out to the garden for 5 minutes.
My hip's been relatively OK ever since. Which is both good and annoying. The shoulder is playing Hokey-Cokey (in, out, in, out, shake it all about) but nothing new there. So all in all, its a slightly irritating mystery.
Or is arthritis one of those things that likes to disappear when you look at it, kind of like ninjas?
