'limp on the side' is the definition.
'flank' can be an answer for 'side' (I've seen this in another clue). I am unsure of the 'limp on the' bit.

'thin' becomes 'lank' (similar in meaning).
The first letter of 'feel' is 'f'.

'and' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for flank that I've seen before include "Side of an animal" , "Haunch" .)
