Every time is lift my shoulders above my head my shoulder clicks, it doesn't hurt at first, but about 30 seconds after it clicks it feels sore (Similar to the feeling one has the day after they work out.) If i rotate my hand the tendon in my forearm snaps and clicks near my elbow. (it throbs after it cracks similar to my shoulder. I have limited motion in my wrist without it cracking. And whenever I fully extend my left knee i have a loud crack. All the bones in my hands grind and click when I make a fist inside a boxing glove, (Or if i hold onto a pillow or something very tightly) My hands and forearms also hurt much more after playing video games.
I cannot even do a push-up without my shoulder/arm/elbow/wrist cracking.
I'm not in severe pain, but it's annoying as ***l. Doing everyday things shouldn't involve pain and clicking and grinding, especially for a very healthy 17 year old male.
I used to box 4 times a week, and lift weights 3 times a week. I was boxing for about 6 months while simultaneously running track. Track was done so i started lifting weights, and boxing (I knew what I was doing I didn't just go in there and do the exercises wrong.) And the weight lifting made all my joints much worse. It got to a point where it was very bad, so I quit all physical activities and did nothing for about 5 months, the symptoms stayed relatively the same, In the past month I have been running 4 miles a day, but I never intentionally crack anymore. The lack of intentional cracking have made the symptoms SUBSIDE, but not disappear. (Even as I am sitting here typing this my shoulder cracks whenever I reach for the mouse.) Ive been taking 2 very hot showers a day which make me feel much better, so that's nice :D.
I have been to...
1 Orthopedic surgeon...
-X Ray = Nothing
-Bone scan with spectrum = Nothing
-Not Lime Disease
-Not Rheumatoid Arthritis
- (I was tested for many other things too, all negative sorry I can't remeber exactly all of them)
- "There is nothing wrong with you"
1 Physical Therapist
- I have never seen these symptoms in 30 years, go to a high end Pediatric Rheumotologist in the city.
So... can someone give me some guidance? I don't know what to do anymore, who to go see, and the symptoms aren't going away, and it is just staying the same, I want very very badly to start boxing again and doing other forms of exercise other than running.
If anyone can please give me any info I would appreciate it more than you could know,
