  • Cracking of joints

    Does anyone else with fibro have cracking of the joints. Im 21 and every joint in my body cracks. My hips, legs, feet, arms, shoulders, wrists, back...everything. They don't hurt but it is alarming and sometimes scars people because it is so loud. If I sit for a long time or stand they will crack. Sometimes just when I'm walking my legs will crack. I am very achy in the morning but my body loosens up as I move around.
    Diagnosis: IC '09, vulvodynia '10, fructose intolerance '06, GERD '06, fibromyalgia '09, IBS '10 and TMJ '09, PCOS '11, genital herpes '12

    Current Meds: Butrans patch, welbutrin, lamictol, geodon, xanax, aldactone, linzess, topimax, trazadone and diflucan as needed.

    Meds tried before: Elmiron, elavil, antibiotics, welbutrin, cymbalta, prozac, nerve blocks, instills, nyastatin, flexerol, percocet, naproxen (which was what I was given for pain for years).

      I've been told by Ortho that those are ligaments and tendons snapping. He said they are loose?

        No one has given it much thought. It started 2 years ago...My PT heard them crack and said that wasnt normal... I'm not sure if its part of fibro. I haven't heard anyone else having that issue.
