I suppose the only way of not hearing the awful noises is to lose our hearing and we sure don't want that! I already feel like mine is lessening. I guess we would rather live with the RA and OA sounds!

I'm starting my ticker over with going low carb.

no, I hear ya Karen. My neck snaps and craclkle every time I turn my head...The other area is more of a "clank clank" --that's my shoulder bones banging together. I truly could live without the sound effects.

The worst for me, believe it or not, is my neck! Ugh! It's on certain days and it's especially when I look down and am moving it around. It seems so loud to me! I read that article too from the RA Warrior, Cynthia. Snap, Crackle and Pop is so right!

Mine are terrible....knees and hips are the worst, but even my shoulders make a lot of noise...crepitus, huh? Very apt!

Hi,

About five months and I had spontaneous swelling, fluid build up and a whole lot of pain in my left knee. The pain was so bad I had to painfully shuffle around the house in the morning. I was unable to lift my left foot without extreme pain. It was the first time this happened to me. I racked my brain trying to find the cause of the problem, but I couldn't. You know how RA is, when it rears it's ugly head. My rheumy injected cortisone in my knee, ordered physical therapy, a walker and a brace. I had the best experience in therapy. I learned so much. The therapist told me if I ever had a problem like that again I could use the material she gave me and my memory of what I learned. So true. She ordered a brace that was truly awesome. The good thing about all this it is my knees are stronger than before I had my injury. Now, I'm less likely to have an injury. I'm able to perform my Tai Chi better, too. Lol. The moral of the story is, it pays to be proactive. The exercises that were given to you are a god sent. Use them wisely!

Have a good day

My RA doctor brought my left knee to my attention. There is a haunted house quality to it as it creaks and pops. emoticon His nurse taught me several exercises for my knee. It is clear my right knee is the stronger one.
