Only theories: Why joints sound like Rice Krispies Cereal (snap, crackle, and pop!) with no pain & normal functioning is a topic of debate. If your back does not hurt and you have no other symptoms like numbness, tingling, weakness, loss of bowel or bladder control, then don't worry. Try stretching before hand and "get the kinks out." first. My kiddo can twist and all her vertebra would pop sequentially! Ew! ...Read more

My (L) knee been hurting & when I walk it feels like its popping out then back in on the sides &after it did that it started swelling up and red.
Exam would help: Hard to diagnose knee problems in this forum. Based on the "popping" there is a good chance this is mechanical (torn meniscus for example). In the absence of injury, then problems like infection, autoimmune disease, tumor would be considered. If this is recurring; let your doctor know. You may be cleared with a simple physical exam and/or xray, or you may benefit from seeing the specialist. ...Read more

Consult doc to find the cause/treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

What is wrong with the base of big toe. So much pain, redness, swollen, can't really walk on it and it keeps cracking and popping when I do walk on it?
Hallux Limitus: Hallux limitus is a painful arthritic condition of the big toe joint where the toe meets the foot. Cortisone injections, icing, antiinflammatories, and orthotics are very helpful. Ultimately you may need surgery to clean out the joint and decompress the joint for more motion. You may also be suffering from an acute gout attack of the joint. The treatment is similar. See a podiatrist! ...Read more

I would recommend seeing a sports doc tomorrow if you can. ...Read more
