I'm just wondering if this could be connected in some way to the hypothyroidism? I've clicked and cluncked for several years, but the past few years it's become worse.
Everything clicks! My shoulders, hips, knees (they crunch quite badly), chest, neck and my back. Back at Christmas one of my dogs pulled quite badly towards a cat, and since that point I've had extra pain in my ribs under my chest. I've seen the doctor about this - the first one I saw thought it was a pulled muscle, but the second doctor actually pushed my first rib back into place. However, it didn't make any difference and the pain continued. I went back, and he pushed another couple of ribs back into place whilst I lay face down on the couch. He also re-aligned my spine - this was done before years ago too. It may have helped slightly with the rib pain, but it's still there. Now the clicks are returning, and it just seems whatever the doctor does, it just comes back again!
Yesterday, I lifted my head off the pillow to get out of bed, and my neck clicked so badly, that I had a painful neck all day along with a headache and inability to turn my head sideways of lift it up straight!
I'm 38 - but sometimes feel like a pensioner. Could this have something to do with the thyroid or am I barking up the wrong tree??
