Is it to  the left or to the right.  The wheel turns left in rapid 
forward  motion most of the time.  Since that is the case if turning 
the axel  nut to the left loosens it wouldn't the centripidal force 
of the spining  wheel eventually spin the nut off?  It would make 
sense that  threading the nut to loosen to the right to prevent that 
from  happening.  

The nut is 'reverse threaded', or really it's all a matter of  perspective.  
You are looking at the back side of it!!
Turn the nut the 'tight' way and you will get it off!  Been there,  done that.
