Every Joint Cracking

Every Joint Cracking

Does anyone else experience lots of joint cracking? I’m trying to figure out if it is fibro related. I’ve always had joints that crack, but recently I’ve noticed that all my joints crack with every movement I take. It’s not painful, but I feel like all my joints have destableized. Does anyone know if this is a result of fibro? Or something else? Thanks!

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

I have this too, but I only notice it going up stairs. I wondered if it was related too.

Has Anyone Else Experienced Joint Pain After They Were Diagnosed With Fibromyalgia? Any Recommendations?

After the onset of Fibromyalgia, I have experienced major joint pain and "cracking" of the joints. Is there anything I can do to help stop it or at least slow it down? Does anyone know what caused it?

Do Your Tissue Around Your Muscles Crack?

Do Your Tissue Around Your Muscles Crack?

Sometimes the tissue around my muscles ache and when I rub them it feels like they are snapping and cracking. It's not the joint itself but the tissue and ligaments around the muscle that is cracking. I can spend hours rubbing my arms and cracking all the tissue around my lower arms, elbow area and upper arms. It's the same with my legs. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I used to crack my knuckle joints when I was younger, but the tissue????

Has Anyone Else Discovered Joints Feel 'tight' But If You Crack Your Joint You Get Relief?

Has Anyone Else Discovered Joints Feel 'tight' But If You Crack Your Joint You Get Relief?

I'm sure I'm driving my co workers nuts, but.... I get this tight uncomfortable feeling in some joints, and if I crack them I feel relief, like my fingers, wrists, ankles. So I'm cracking my hands and wrists all day at work. The joints don't necessarily crack themselves. Sure I've got the creaks and cracks of old injuries, but this is in joints I've never hurt. And I don't remember it being this way before fibro.

Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic Treatment

Why isn't osteopathic manipulation on this list? It makes more sense for people with FMS than chiropractic because it involves manipulation of soft tissues rather than just cracking joints.

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

Their title is Doctor of Osteopathy or D.O. They are a doctor so can treat the whole person, which is beneficial to someone with Fibromyalgia
