Patient: "Doctor, I've got pain in my left hip."
Me: "When does it hurt? When you're walking?"
P: "No, not really."
Me: "Does it hurt when you're exercising?"
Me: "Does it hurt right now, while you're sitting here?"
P: "No, not right now."
Me: "Okay, so when does it hurt?"
P: "Doctor, it hurts when I do this." [Patient stands up, spreads his legs apart and lifts his left hip while simultaneous fully externally rotating it. Sort of a "I'm a little teacup" pose.]
Me: [barely concealing laughter] "Well, how often do you have to do that?"
P: "I guess not too often."
Me: "Okay, just try not to do that anymore."
