having "a hitch in your giddy-up". means, you don't feel well, right? If relevant, maybe adding 00:22, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

No, I don’t think that’s quite what it means. I understand it to mean a "peculiarity in your gait", "walking with a limp", a "problem with your stride". You can say it of someone whose foot is asleep, or if someone has suffered a severe wedgie, and you can even say it of a gorgeous woman whose walk entails an eye-popping hip-swivelling. It can also be used figuratively, such as for a machine that is broken down or a computer that is running slowly because of too many things being processed at once, or even, as you say, for someone who does not feel well. —Stephen 15:01, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
