Yea, sometimes they can sorta get locked in there... once you get it to move it should be no problem... sometimes going tighter actually will move easier then going loser (as someone has already said). But no, they come out the normal way, counter clockwise to losen. Or, righty tighty lefty losey... that doesn't help me but it might help you (or someone else). Only two thinks that i can think of that are reverse threaded are the axel thing on circular saw type mechines and i've heard gas lines are (not sure about that though)
