This has gotten me very worried. For about 2 weeks now, even when I move my fingers and thumbs in their normal range of motion, not trying to pop them or anything, the joints sometimes crack. What could cause this? My fingers seem fine otherwise, but the joints that crack hurt for a little while afterwards. I'm an 18 year old boy if that helps as well.
