Unhappy Cracking in many joints, worried

In the past few days I notice that many of my joints crack. I'm male and 30 years old. I have cracking in my knees,elbows,wrists and also my toes when I walk!
I do not take any medicine and didn't change anything which could explain why suddenly my joints crack.
I also have a longer history of pain in my knees and wrists and I also have been having persistent pain in one of my finger knuckles. I got an MRI of my hand and it also showed nothing except a slight swelling of the tissue beneath the skin and yet I have been having pain for over 1 year now when I bend my finger and it doesn't get better at all.
I'm very worried about all these things and no doctor can help me. I have also been to an osteologist who ran expensive blood tests and also found nothing. I don't know what else I can do. Whenever I went to an orthopaedist
with pain or cracking he was never able to help me or tell me what's wrong.

Re: Cracking in many joints, worried

Well, cracking isn't always a sign of a problem. It could be air trapped in the joint- like when someone pops their knuckles. If testing has ruled out any bone ships or spurs and arthritis, then I would say you are fine. It's not unusual for an active person of your age to have some inflammation of the joints so you could try Aleve or something like that to see if it help with any soreness. Or you could get a prescription one such as Meloxicam or Celebrex.

Hello,
I am not an active person. I am in bad shape. My knees hurt, my shoulders hurt. Years ago when I was still active I also had a lot of pain in joints and noone found anything.
