Popping/creaking joints

wendyp - August 1

Does anyone have joints that pop and creak? It seems that no joint is spared when I'm having a flare-up.

I know exactly what you are talking about. My joints sound like that of a 90 year old person. I am only 31.

Mine do, but have all my life. I can't sneak up on anyone!

I sound like the cereal ..snap, crackle, pop, and it echos throughout my bodyinto my head. Oh and my neck/head crunches also.

I am so glad I found this site because I thought I needed knee replacements mine pop so bad -- sorry you are having to deal with this but glad I am not alone.

oh yes, just about all my joints pop and creak. it's horrible when I have flare-ups. it's sad, I'm only 24 and I sound like a senior citizen when trying to get off the couch sometimes

have definately heard my knees make cracking sounds and my neck makes that crunchy sound also.. I think quite a few of us deal with these lovely sounds:)

I've always had joint pain and tenderness but just 2 months ago the joints in my hands have been freezing up, popping and crackling. Just when i thought things couldn't get any worse!

Yes. All my joints pop and crack and I have to be so careful 'cause my body is so fragile. Also have to get chiro care constantly to put everything back. No fun.

However, I learned last year I actually have Lyme disease, from a tick bite 26 years ago. The Lyme bacteria messes with our nerves and soft tissue.

So yes, I still go to the chiropractor, but now I know I have to treat the bacterial infection. www.lymenet.org is a great site to read about Lyme and coinfections and see whether you think you match what people are saying. If so, you can find a Lyme-treating doctor, get bloodtested and try clinical treatment.

yes, all the time. i can't get out of bed or move around without something popping or cracking. it's in my knees and elbow, ankles. i hate it, it scares me.

I can't believe it. I just typed in fibro and joint popping and it brought me to this site so I signed up. I have it and when I'm trying to rest my knees and elbows actually feel like they're jammed in place. When I move that's when I get the loud popping sound. It's awful but at least I found others that have it too. I was beginning to think some other horrible disease was starting.

Although i have not been recognised with having anything, arthritis or fibro, my joints have been cracking and crunching for years. It has been worse in the last few, but my doctor says it is "normal" for them to creak loud enough for everyone to hear every time i lean forwards to get a pen. I am barely eighteen and i have worse sounding joints than my octogenerian granny!

 

Gabbie - October 9

For Jocobea. I have seen another one of your posts and after reading this one, I really think you should considering finding another doctor. If you do have fibro, you definately need someone who is going to give you the time to talk and try to suggest things that may help you. Having a doctor that tells you that it's normal to have creaking joints, especially at your age, is definately not what you need. Please find a good rheumatogist (a regular MD is not enough) that will run the necessary blood tests to rule out other problems first. It sounds like fibro but you need to be sure of that before you can hopefully learn to cope with it.

I usually find my joints doing this more when my flare ups rae worse, so when muscles are spasmed and pulling joints out of alignment.

If you can handle massage therapy I would reccomend that. I cant so I use aqua therapy heat treatment, drugs, meditation and rest to relax muscles and ease these "pops" which are often quite painful.

Chin up :)

Yes. This is a bacterial infection, called Lyme disease. It is a spiral bacteria and it corkscrews its way into our soft tissues. It also depletes the body of nutrition. We need a lot of supplementation. One favorite of mine is the Trace Minerals products, the ones with 70 minerals in them from the Utah seabeds.Go read at http://flash.lymenet.org. People there can help you get in touch with a Lyme-literate physician.

Joints Hypermobility. My story of recovery.

Hi!
I am familiar with these symptoms.
This is the connective tissue disease.
It is called “Joints Hypermobility”.
The joints sore, they become crunchy, soft tissue may ache…
The ligaments are stretched.
Cartilage tissue wears out fast.
I published treatment regimens.
There is information regarding alternative medicine preparations as well.
I’ll tell what can help you!
This is my story of recovery -
