What does it mean to hear popping noises in knees and have pain on and off?

Fluid buildup: Most joint noises are attributed to a hydraulic effect of fluid in the joint (normal or increased quantity) being forced around based on movement. This is akin to the bang or rattle heard in pipes in older houses with abrupt water turn-off. It can indicate excess fluid--like from injury, or be normal. It is usually harmless, but should be evaluated if associated with pain or decreased motion. ...Read more

Every morning I get out of bed and my knees and ankles pop constantly. Is that good or bad? Should I stop popping them?

Every morning I get out of bed and my knees and ankles pop constantly. Is that good or bad? Should I stop popping them?

No pain, no problem: We used to think that popping our knuckles, neck, back etc.. Caused arthritis. However, there is no evidence of causal relationship has been found until this time. It is indeed a habit and once formed, the joints "feel the need to pop" intermittently. As long as it does not cause pain while doing it..Enjoy the popping. If u don't like to hear the pop, don't do it..It will stop with time. Good luck. ...Read more
