Bonnie, from what you describe, there's a good chance you've got loose wiring connections to this outlet.

If your home is wired in aluminum, this MUST be addressed by an electrician (I can't stress that enough.) If the home is wired in copper, and you have replaced switches/outlets before or are familiar with doing such, you can turn off the power at the breaker box & make the needed repairs.

In either case, this is not a good ongoing situation; do not use the outlet, and get it fixed asap.
