Is there a ‘real’ word for when someone’s arms and legs don’t agree when they walk, or agree in ways that are different from everyone else?

I see no evidence of such a word. The best phrase that seems to be out there is “arm swing disorder.”

Mt gait is dissimilar to most people because of a hip injury in a prior millenium.  Many people refer to me as a fuckin’ crip. but I think that fuckin’ gimp is somewhat more accurate.  As long as you have an authentic smile, either is jake with me, but if otherwise, I find that my clumsiness level increases, and my quad cane may accidentally come into painful contact with your instep or shin.

So how does “everyone else” walk, anyhow?  Are they pacers. or trotters. or do they gallop?

I was having in mind affected mannerism .  I saw some of that in body guards type.  In youngsters, it could be just out of being self conscious.

‘Evidence of a word’ is a most profound concept-  some evidence of laughing, crying, getting married, taking up arms, but no one can quite put a finger on the word itself.
