I'm very concerned, I've had bodywide cracking of my joints which has gotten progressively worse over the last couple of years. My physio wanted me to be tested for RA. I had some tests done although they missed out RF for some reason and instead looked for inflammatory markers - negative.
My wrists, elbows, knees and ankles seem to be the worst offenders. There is also sometimes pain assosciated with the cracking too, which is what got me worried. Often there will be a sense of tightness and uncomfort in the joint, then this loud cracking will solve that issue.
Every time I do a press up, my elbow and shoulder clicks, every single time.
If I crack my knee like a normal person would which pops the nitrogen bubbles etc, I can do it again within 1-2 minutes of the intial pop, whereas I read a normal person would have to wait 20 minutes atleast.
I'd really like to find an answer and wondered if anyone had similar issues and got to the bottom of it? Im trying to progress in life but I can't as I'm worried I'm falling apart. I'm only 24.
Many thanks for any help.
