Many different thing: A visit to a rheumatologist to discuss your symptoms in more detail as well as getting a good physical exam is key for you. Crepitus itself does not mean something is wrong.

Crepitus: Crepitus in a joint indicates 2 rough surfaces rubbing on each other. See a rheumatologist for an exam and workup.
