I have MS symptoms but am showing up normal on tests. I have a strange symptom I would like to ask about. I get "clicking" feelings in my joints, that don't hurt, but sometimes can be like a quick spark feeling. I think it is actually the tendons/ligaments next to the joints, but am not sure. They do this with movement and the click or spark is very fast (in both ankles and wrists but at varying times and to varying degrees--started in my L ankle). Well, I realized I can SEE it now in my L wrist. In my left wrist at the joint on the right side, when I bend my hand downwards, the ligament that runs across the joint, actually falls over the joint to the right side. This doesn't happen on my right wrist joint. It is now constant and I can see it but not really feel it, tho it started with a clicking feeling. Why would this happen?
This is Dr. Davidsometimes when we all get older our joints don't work as well as they did when we were younger. sometimes ligaments and tendons can also get more lax and loose as we get older as well and when this happens, you can have small joint dislocations which can cause these sorts of "clicking" feelings in the joints. also as we get older, there cartilage between joints can wear down and sometimes bone can rub against bone and cause a clicking feeling called crepitus. you should get an xray of the joints in your hands and others places where you are having these clicking feedlings and see if your doctors can see any arthritis or joint inflammation
I am 30 years old. this is happening in my ankles and wrists and sometimes elbows all at once. It cannot be that all my joints decided within the past few months at the same time I am having weird unexplained neuro symptoms that I am just getting "old." It does not add up.
you should see a doctor and get tested for things like rheumatoid arthritis. this sometimes can happen in 30 year old patients. this is an autoimmune disease where your body makes antibodies against your own cells and can inflame the joints and can cause these sorts of symptoms. seeing a rheumatologist and getting some blood test can tell for sure if this is what is going on.
