Hello ppl,

I am shaun 26. Here's my story, it all started with my knee. My knee began to crack last year but with no pain. I was not too worried as it was not causing me any pain. The doctor I went to told me that it was due to weak ligaments suggeseted some exercises to strengthen my quadracepts. It helped to some extent.

But after an year or so, I started to have pain and warmth(burning sensation) in the knees. And interestingly all my other joints (elbow, wrist, fingers, shoulder and hip) also began to crack and have the same pain, warmth and burning sensation. I felt something was not right.

So, I got my joints xrayed and they are all fine. No Arthritis. And my doctor has put me on 600mg Ibuprofen and asked me to exercise more often instead of doing more tests to diagonize my problem. So, Any Help on how to diagonize my problem is greatley appreciated.

  • I just posted my joint pain story (joint pain and lung cancer) No I don't think you have lung cancer,the joint pain that comes with lung cancer is from extra bone and exrays would have shown that. But my research turned up some options you might want to check Hepititis (sp?), lupus, or maybe lyme disiese. Are you having any other problems? Do lots of research and don't be afraid to get 2nd, 3rd, 12th opinions if it take that!! GOOD LUCK!!
