What exactly is in my neck making it crack and creak for 3 years? Lactic acid? I find it hard to believe inflammation can stick around for so long. Is it a blood flow issue? I have babs and lyme will tx resolve this symptom? I hate waking up in the morning and just having to hear the most unnerving neck crack "CRACK" every @#$%ing morning. Just a constant reminder that something is f2398ed.

Gosh my neck will crack every time I rotate it.

It never did this prior to Lyme and co-infections.

The stiffness has mostly left with babesia treatment.

My right knee does this too.

Hugs,

Geneal

Hi All

I am perty sure that Babs is the cause
of cracking joints and stiff neck-

My neck used to be so stiff and crack-
you could here it across the room -
I am not kidding -

Once I started treating Babs Also -
the cracking stiff joints slowly went away-

I think taking Gluecosimine Sulfate(GS) is also
a good thing to do- it repairs the cartilage
damage that Babs causes -Jay--

As Jay did with babs, so I was able to do for Lyme for six months while clindamycin was working - suddenly, no more crazy bone cracking. Am back on clinda again, it's working, so looking forward to a reprieve for a little while.

My PT told me just yesterday that cracking is nothing to be concerned about UNLESS there is pain with the cracking.

My neck, knees and ankles crack all the time. Always have. Especially my neck.

My neck has cracked for years ever since I got diagnosised with Lyme. I had MRIs they claim arthritic changes to the C1 cervical spine. There is no pain it really only cracks when I turn my head to the right not the left.
