Cracking joints causes

Recommended Posts

I am trying to work this out but can't find an obvious solution. 

As of a week ago, many of my joints started to crack when I move after a rest. 

Age 43, on keto diet. Take Vit D, C, k2, magnesium, zinc, potassium salt. 

I can't think what would have triggered it all over sudden. I did start intermittent fasting last week as was a bit stuck with keto progress. 

I have read it may be caused by being dehydrated, and I may have been for a couple of days (after a sauna, Long (for me) fitness session and not drinking tea/coffee all day at work). I am not dehydrated now but the cracking is still there. 

I haven't had any recent weight loss or gain, and exercise is mostly limited to weights sessions. 

Piuzzled because it's everywhere. Knees, wrists, shoulders, ankles, toes etc. 

Not every movement triggers it, but I had no sounds at all for a few years, so now am a bit concerned.

Have you been pfizered, it may be your immune system attacking your joints, my neck pops, left knee does, left elbow does and my shoulder and wrist (left) are strange as well.

The neck one goes with a proper bang.

p.s. I'm 56.

No, pureblood here.

Although I have had a cold on and off last few weeks that I thought I have mostly recovered from.

I'm going to sound like a single interest poster but... try giving up coffee/caffeine for 10 days. Do you drink a lot of it?

For the past 5-6 years I've had this weird clicking in my knee, whenever I bent down. If I did a load of squats it went for about half a day. Otherwise it was constant.

Since I've quit drinking coffee it has completely gone. It could be that it's anxiety not caffeine btw, mine were linked. If you're anxious, perhaps it's that.

Or dehydration as coffee causes that.

I may have been dehydrated during the days when it clicked more than usual. A result of combination of fasting, sauna, being off work for a few days (and therefore not constantly drinking tea or coffee). 

Had lots of coffee and tea today, no clicks so far. 

I can't give up coffee now, really helps at the gym in the morning. Just trying not to drink it in the afternoons. Sometimes have Chickory instead, pretty close in taste.
