Hello everyone, I would appreciate some input here.
The joints of my body give off a cracking sound very often, especially when I move after a long time in the same position - sitting for example. It's not painful, but I do feel that split second of discomfort when it "cracks".
I suspect this might be due to the fact that I have minimal muscles and fats to support my bones/ligaments. Most of the time, it poses no major problem, just a nasty sound and feeling which I've grown used to.
However recently, the joints of my entire right arm (wrist, elbow and shoulder) is starting to ache slightly even when it's not "cracking". I'm a little concern because being a right-hander, I would like it to work effortlessly for as long as possible.
Is there a medical term for this or is it simply one of those nagging pains? I understand it's best that I seek professional advice, and I have made an appointment with an orthopedist. Unfortunately, it's a long wait so I thought I'd do some reading in the meantime.
