Takes a long time to be able to crack knuckles again? Watch

    So i've recently started regularly cracking my knuckles, but I've noticed something quite odd, after I've cracked my knuckles, it can take ages to be able to properly crack them again, sometimes upwards of 2 hours. Is this normal? Will it get shorter if I do it more? Or is there a way to make it take less time?

    It should only take 1 hour 59 minutes so I think you should get this checked out.

    The "crack" isn't your bones or anything, it's a build up of gas bubbles that pop and make noise. Those bubbles take time to come back which is why you can't always do it. Totally normal.
    Well that's what it appears to be anyway, scientists are still looking into it. But whatever it is that causes it, it's totally normal for it to take time to be able to do it again.

    Out of interest, why is it you've started doing that recently?
