gee this is really freaking me out now.  I think among the many other things i must do i guess i need to see rhumatoid doctor....anyone getting this little clicking/popping even in hands and shoulders? I get this crazy little popping everywhere...is this tendonitis or the begining of osteoporosis??? I can just rest my head on my hand and theres these little clicking/popping noises.  I don't feel tons of pain though.

Finding,

Same here. Someone told me it is from inflammation. Must not be too bad, though, because I don't have any pain.

smurf  oh Rose, it was such a relief to get your reply so quickly. all day when i move I am so aware of my ligaments/tendons! Maybe it is from inflammation- i would figure if our tendons were actually in danger we would feel some major warning pain or something- it's almost like i'm an old house that's off balance and everything is helter skelter! heehee. I will try to put it out of my mind. Can i email you rose?

finding - feel free to email me. When I first started with this popping early in the summer it drove me NUTS! Now I guess I'm getting used to it. At first I was sure I was going to be damaged because my body didn't feel as if it were held together well anymore. So far I haven't fallen apart. I take glucosamine daily. Maybe it is helping a little. I do not like feeling creeky and, as I've come to think of it, "rickety" at my age. I hadn't thought this would happen for another 25-30 years.

Imagine how i feel- i'm 21! I shouldn't be feeling this at all!! but it helps to know i'm not alone. Guess i should start taking my glucosamine again too- had slacked off b/c it said it contained some kind of seafood and i guess i was worried about having a reaction- does your bottle say anything about seafood?

I buy a vegetarian form of glucosamine. I do not want to use the shellfish product. Blue Bonnet makes one. There is also a liquid, Joint Juice, but it has sweetener in it. It's a generalization, but the great thing about youth is resiliance. I'm at an age where things start going wrong anyway. Add Lyme to that, and who knows? You are right, though, at 21, I'm sure it is particularly disturbing to be having what is generally thought of as senior citizen symptoms. However, you have a wonderful exhuberance that leaves me optimistic for your potential to get through all of this unscathed.

I truly do hope so Rose, thank you for the encouragement- it means a lot. Gee i wish i had known to look for a vegetarian product- i already opened mine so i suppose i'm stuck with it. In the future i will look for the blue bonnet product. Have you seen a Rhumatoid doctor? I am thinking of doing this just to see what they can find if anything- with my tendons and bones.

I have seen a rheumatologist. He tested me for Lupus and Lyme, and for arthritis. All three tests were, according to him, negative. He then basically told me to quit worrying about my health, to go off and live my life because I was healthy. This in front of my new husband who was probably wondering if I was a nut case since I'd been so sick and he was now hearing I wasn't sick at all. That was in 2005. It took me until 2009 to get properly diagnosed. I hope you find a better rheumatologist than I did.

Ladies,
my husband had unbelivable cracking of joints and after 3 months of iv antibiotic + countless supplements for lyme it has practically stopped...thank God...used to sound like his bones were breaking...rheumatologist we saw at NYU didn't even test for lyme...but llmd said definitely a lyme symptom...good luck...

Great to hear this may not be permanent.
