I cracked my fingers, neck and ankles while reading this thread!! Oh dear! Yeah everyone is always moaning at me for doing it. It's worse when the weather is cold. Can it do you any harm? My Dad is always telling me that it'll give me arthritis...

I click my jaw, neck, elbows, upper back, shoulders, knees, toes, hands regularly.
Someone else that does it too!
My friends all think I'm strange for clicking my jaw. I do it constantly, about once or twice every 30 seconds. It's probably not good, and my jaw randomly dislocates as well, which is very painful but I've got used to it and figured out how to put it back.
My thumbs and wrists click all the time, something to do with them being double jointed, it hurts if I don't click them. And my right ankle.
im gonna read through these in a minute but i click my thumbs fingers and left wrist (random)
i started cracking my left wrist about a year ago because i had repetive strain injury since i was around 9 or 10 and i felt it would do something therefore felt better when i did it
quote my diary from 2002 - "i have this feeling in my left wrist where i really want to crack it but i wont crack so now it really really hurts" and continues for the next week saying "my left wrist still hurts"
little did i know it would become a problem continuing into my late teens :-(
i can cracked my toes but only when i can be assed
one more thing- i know this is weird but iv always done it. i can crack my teeth- can anyone else do that????? when i put pressure between the molar teeth on the left hand side i can feel them "go down" (only way to describe it) and makes a little noise. the right hand side can "go down" but makes no noise- and every couple of hours when pressing down on left side theres a big crack. my sister can hear it but i havnt told anyone about it because its just weird?! dont say mention it to your doctor/dentist coz there is nothing i can do about it as iv been doing it for years and years. anyone else do that????
i have an obsession with clicking my finfers, ive now found i can click the same one twice, so i now get in around 15 clicks at a time, and do this about 6 or 7 times a day, it just relieves the pain and stress
i used to have just one finger that would clck but then i kinda forced the others to and find that i do it more when at work or nervous or just thinking about it. reading this made me do it as well lol ahh

I am addicted to clicking my fingers and this addiction is spiralling out of control
First I used to do it a few times a week, then a few times a day and now I find that every 5 minutes I have to push my fingers back to relieve the tension.
My hands feel really numb and weak but I can't stop but as of this point I am going to really try.
I also have to keep stretching my right shoulder till it clicks to make it feel better. Argh!
Do any of you guys have this problem?
I click my back/shoulder blade on the right side but that's about it and only accidentally usually. When I'm in pain with it, I click it more as it's a relief for a few minutes though what I find is that it actually makes it worse and leads to a bad cycle, much like the one you're in. Stop doing it and the need will eventually ease.
