  1. Hello - Are you still active on this forum? Very interested in your situation from 2014. Is it possible to get an update? I am experiencing some of the same symptoms that you explained and am lost. Thanks.

  2. Thanks nvsmom and janpell. I usually feel my best when I haven't eaten for several hours. I'm on a mission to gain weight though, so I've been eating as often as possible. Usually when I finish a meal, I feel it in the wrists first. Some days are better than others, but the popping is always...
  3. They haven't been able to explain it which is why I'm reaching out to this community. However Irish, they didn't say it wasn't a rheumatic condition. Well, SOME (I've seen four different ones) have said I don't have arthritis. One said I have inflammatory arthritis and that he could feel inflammation...
  4. I never said neither of those things. I said I had difficulty lecturing when I was experiencing the jaw popping, and I never said it wasn't a big deal.
  5. karen, I've seen numerous doctors and have been a pin cushion for blood work. I've had a joint scan and bone scan. Those were both done a while back though, and this all started two years ago. So I'm not sure what an x-ray would show today on the different joints. The last time I asked about it,...
  6. I move all the time. I teach fourth grade and I am constantly on my feet and moving. I've also been in a great deal of pain over the last two years while working and wondered if I can continue as my symptoms progress. It's very difficult to stop stressing when you're in pain all the time and symptoms...
  7. Thanks for the John Hopkins link. Have seen it many times, and it is not describing my particular condition. This is not normal popping that comes from lack of motion. Irish I'm not sure how many times I need to explain this or if I'm simply not explaining it clearly. My bones SNAP. This isn...
  8. There is pain associated with the popping. I had difficulty lecturing to my class when the jaw popping went on. My hips hurt almost daily from the clicking in them, and when the knee popping gets bad, it is painful. When my wrists pop, they don't generally hurt, but in feels uncomfortable and they...
  9. I posted about my issues with joint popping a while back, but I wanted to try and again to see if I would get any more responses. Does anyone have chronic joint popping? It started with my wrists and shoulders. I had it a while in my jaw but it went away. However, it never stops in the wrists and...
  10. My symptoms are VERY similar to yours, and I've been almost down the same path. 19 months after the severe joint pain started, I still do not have GI issues that cause stomach or intestinal pain. My biggest problem is that my popping seems to be progressing to other major joints (mainly my knees...
  11. I really wonder if I'm undiagnosed Celiac. I've been off gluten for over a year now, and when I had my upper endoscopy done, I'd been off for about 7 months. My villi looked great according to my GI doctor who performed the biopsies. Mayo also said my genetic blood test they did came back absent...
  12. foam, thank you for this information. How did you go about learning of your B12 deficiency? My gastroenterologist (who is apparently the best GI doctor in Austin) is the one who discovered the redness in my stomach when he did my upper endoscopy. He said is was gastritis and didn't really know what...
  13. I've been told by four rheumatologists that I don't have arthritis. But, I have severe joint pain if I eat certain foods. Now that I've managed to reduce the joint pain through diet, this popping is taking over. It's like everything is getting loose. There is an autoimmune response going on that...
  14. Thanks. Really don't understand why this popping condition is so rare. Very frightening.
  15. When you say IgG, are you referring to something like this? https://www.xymogen.com/products/product-detail.aspx?pid=84
