Snap, Crackle, Pop?

For years I have had popping joints. My ankels, shoulders, knees, wrists etc. Many mornings I wake up and tilt my head to the side to get a serious of pops, usually 5 or 6. My fingers always feel like they need to pop which is probably something they got used to when I was in martial arts as a kid (which might have been when i got the fibro triggering injury.)

But its left me wondering... is this something a lot of people with fibro deal with? Or am I just related to a rice crispy treat?

I pop too but I also have arthritis so I don't know which causes it.

I pop, especially my kness and back. I have arthritis as well. They both probably cause it.

I don't have arthritis. My doctor has heard my popping and commented that it is unusual for someone to have that without arthritis or another cause.

My neck, knees and ankles have popped and crackled every since I can remember. As far as I know I don't have arthritis in them.

My shoulders always pop when i am getting exam by my rheum

with my fibromyalgia. my knees been lately too.

and i was tested for Arthritis and i do not have that either.

maybe it's something to do with medications taken or

having fibro. not sure but it's weird i keep snapping,popping,

like if my bones are cracking or breaking.i guess if it something i should worry bout my doctor would looked more into it.

because he always been picking things up that i been getting monthly.

If you find out what it can be without having arthritis PLEASE email me and let me know. thanksSideways

I actually thought about making the same thread same name..I snap crackle and pop all the time my knees and shoulders are the worst now its just about all of my joints..and no arthritist..I figure its liters or tendants that are tight and pulling because of the muscels I am no doctor but if any of you find a cause let me know

I don't think its the medications in my case. I have been popping since I was around 13/14 and my PAIN onset of fibro was at 16, however in hindsight my other symptoms onset around 15 that i know of. Over the years I have been given pain killers and antinflammitories once or twice, but up until October I was not on any daily medication. Now I am on gabapentin and naproxen and considering trying Lyrica. My point is that I have been popping for a LONG time, since long before the meds.
