Could cracking/pulling your knuckles every minute cause problems?

Could cracking/pulling your knuckles every minute cause problems?

Crack, Pop, Crunch..: Yeah. For everyone around you. It's annoying- and makes you look nervous or uncomfortable. It's like cracking your gum all the time. And yes, it can put chronic strain on the joint capsules and lead to laxity and maybe even some arthritis down the line. Every now and then, OK (like once or twice an hour; or just before a fight). Otherwise knock it off. Try tightly clenching your fists instead. ...Read more

Yes : Yes this is abnormal and needs to be checked out. You have a problem with circulation to your hands. This could be relative to small blood vessels in your hand as in certain rheumatological conditions i.E raynauds. Or you might have a problem with larger vessels though less likely. This is much less common than in the legs and less commonly involving both hands. It can also happen with abnormal pressure on larger vessels though also not common. The important point is that you should get checked out as soon as you can. ...Read more
