    Cracking Joints Anyone?

    Hi All

    Does anyone have problems with cracking joints? I used to just have it in my neck and shoulders, but it has now become a major problem and has spread everywhere, I cannot move without something going crack, even when I breath my back has started to crack. I mentioned this to a rheumatologist recently, and he didn't even examine me, and was keen just to refer me on elsewhere.

    Is this a Lyme symptom? It is actually starting to hurt.

    Best wishes

    YES - that has always been one of my 'anxiety creating' symptoms - it started in my neck and shoulders too.

    Now I creak and crack all over the place - some days are worse than others. When I lay in bed and take a deep breath my sternum cracks - its horrible isn't it.

    A 'chiropractor' told me it is the tendons/ligaments snapping rather than bone, it reassured me a little at the time but I hate it.

    I am in U.K. - 'Bristol'.

    At the moment I am particularly worried about my knees - when I stand from sitting, for about 20 mins., they feel really painful and weak - I can sort of walk it of. This is a new symptom for me.

    Hi Jaynelouise

    It seems the cracking and creaking is common amongst Lymies, it's really bad for me at the moment, has yours improved since treatment?

    My knee problems come and go. They are never swollen, but some days they really ache. They can feel bruised but with no bruises, and sometimes they burn. The other day when I got up from sitting my right knee clicked and I could hardly walk on it at all!

    Do your legs sometimes feel really weak and heavy? I get this often, and sometimes my legs feel quite numb and like jelly. Though I can still walk, it feels like my legs wont carry me.

    Hope your feeling better soon

    Hi, your 'legs/knees' sound a lot like mine. Neck/shoulders were the first most painful areas for me, my neck was really bad at times and the cracking sounds used to scare me a lot.

    The way you describe your 'knees' feeling bruised etc; sounds exactly the same as I experience. When I first started taking doxycycline [antibiotic] my legs felt ridiculously heavy - I could hardly walk - thankfully that feeling did not last long.

    Hope you are feeling better soon as well. x

    I have the same problem, but I think mine is from old age. I'm 81 and the problem gets worse each ear. You did not mention your age, I know of other older folks who have the same symptoms and pains, off and on.

    Hello LauraB

    I hope it's not just old age, I am 34! I think it is Lyme related, it only started happening 5 months ago, but has got increasingly worse and worse in a very short space of time.
