Door panel keeping door from opening

This is one of the mysterious issues that the cobalt pops up with from time to time. It hasn't really been a problem until yesterday. I have a 2006 2 door and the driver door panel occasionally gets hung up on the latch area (threshold perhaps). The panel gets caught right to the left of the pull up lock. It keeps the door from opening. Well the last three times I got out it was really difficult to open and I ended up ripping the panel off in an effort to get the door open. The only thing I can think of is for some reason the door hinges are sagging and the door isn't straight. I've looked everywhere this morning but it's an odd thing to put into words to search for. Anybody have this happen before? The panel is so off right now that I can't use the driver door at all.
