Another possibility is vasospasm upon cold exposure as seen in Raynaud's syndrome. If associated tingling occurs, deficiencies of calcium,magnesium and potassium are possibilities.

If not, you could also have an odd pattern of carpal tunnel syndrome. Wear a wrist brace to sleep (not tight though) and see your doc if it persists. ...Read more

Popping by itself is a normal phenomenon (some think it is due to sliding ligaments and others think that its due to dynamic changes of gas dissolved in the synovial joint fluid). ...Read more
