does anyone have chronic pain and clicking in certain joints? Mine happen on both of the sockets of my shoulders. I can hold my arms out and turn my wrists around and experience super loud super painful scraping clicking and pain. I have fibro but extremely concerned this is beyond fibro. and everything that happens with me occurs on both sides. for example, both shoulders, both knees. It's worse at night and in the mornings, I will yelp in pain if I just change arm positions. loud CRACK! pretty sure that's not a fibro thing...is this some sort of hypermobility issue? please any advice or suspicions encouraged

      I have chronic pain, but no clicking. I would look into seeing a rheumatologist. The only problem with that is the appointments (at least where I am) can take several months to go get in and you need to be referred. I'm having a lot of shoulder pain right now, they think I might have Rheumatoid arthritis (RA). When I was reading the symptoms of it it said "As the disease progresses, symptoms often spread to the wrists, knees, ankles, elbows, hips and shoulders. In most cases, symptoms occur in the same joints on both sides of your body." Which sounds somewhat like what you're experiencing with pain on both sides. I'm not sure about hypermobility, definitely try setting your doctor (if you have one).
