    I would get in touch with your GP in the morning, the last thing you need is for it to give way and you fall and injure yourself.

    My hip does that occasionally, my physio says it’s when a certain movement puts pressure on a tender point and your hip doesn’t want to take the weight. It may indicate further deterioration in the joint. Better pain relief may be helpful, but i’m resigned to more of this until my new hip hoves into view.
