Favors one rear leg, twitch.

I first noticed on the stairs that the left leg came up last. The right leg could be the one she's favoring.

I'll get her back to the vet as when she got her shots, he checked her left and said that she's still bearing weight on it and nothing seems to be broke. I'm not sure if he checked right one.

Also she seems to have a twitch in rear hip muscles.

She does fight with one cat, but that's been going on for 5 years. I'm thinking that a missed jump to get on the barstool to get on the kitchen counter.

She's been up and down the stairs everyday(2 weeks or so) and can jump high enough to toilet rim, but had a big prep for this. She hasn't got on the bed lately, but circled it like she wanted too.

Maybe it's time for one level living so things can heal?

Well, first you need to find out what's wrong, if anything.

You didn't mention how old this cat is. Cats are capable of getting arthritis, just like people.

She's right about 8 years old. Thanks for mentioning the arthritis, I'll bring it up with the vet. I'm probally not well informed enough to know what to look for.
