Did your joints start cracking after you got lyme?I am so sick of drs saying joint cracking is normal...sure it is in some people but it never was with me until 2 wks after the pains started. I prob crack about 100 times a day at least. Sometimes the same joint cracks 5 times within a minute. Everytime I roll over at night my shoulders crack. Now its getting so bad that even my joints pop out of place.....I went to another neuro on Fri and he was moving my leg up and down and felt and heard my hip popping out each time, he didnt know what to say.
I twitch non stop everywhere, this started 2 months after the pains so its been going on 3 months. I am so scared I have ALS due to the twitches and I keep thinking I am cracking because of muscle waste. I had an EMG that was clear however I fear I had it done too soon. I have been told though that sensory items like pain, buring, etc is not associated with ALS so I hold onto that. Its hard NOT to think unreasonable thoughts when you have such odd things going on and no dx
I went to a neuro opthamolgist about my eye and he did a very long exam, he said my eyes were perfect. He saw no nerve damage, no pressure etc.. so I dont know what to think about that.
I found out in an MRI that I have c spine stenosis-its mild to moderate and I was told not the cause of my widespread issues--of course would not explain my cracking. How I got it I have no clue.
How long did it take you to get a dx? Was it through a normal lab or specialized
Thanks so much for giving me so much feedback...
