Noisy Knees?

Recommended Posts

hi Thomas,

I am joining in on this post, recognizing a lot of symptoms I suffer from... ugh! I would love to see a doctor who can help me in Boston. Do you know of anyone?

Thanks for this insight!

I am not sure if this is the same thing as you guys are talking about, but my knees "pop" when I crunch down. And I mean POP! You can hear it clear across the street! And every once in awhile, they "give out" with a sharp pain, and I have to sit down for a few minutes for it to go away...... Ah, the joys of celiac.....

I have been away for a few days, one quick question Thomas, I have looked further into the symptom lists and most say' abnormal fat distribution' but I cannot find ANYTHING on the net that says where on the body the 'abnormal' fat goes! Any ideas???

I am having my knees x-rayed on Wednesday. And have found a UK lab that can do the test.
