Abnormal sounds at joints

Answered by: Dr Sri Viknarajan

Im a man of age 18. Whenever I make a fist I can hear sounds as if I’m bursting my knuckles. It comes any number of times which is not possible if I was really bursting my knuckles. Sometimes after repeated number of times I make a fist I can feel pain in my finger joints. Do any of you know the reason for it and should I visit a doctor ?

I understand your concerns and will try my best to answer you.

For your information, the symptoms you suffered may have several causes, such as nerve impingement over the joint, tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, joint inflammation, trigger finger (tenosynovitis) and so on.

In order to find out the cause for your symptoms, a more detailed history is needed, as well as a proper clinical examinations and relevant investigations. You are required to refer your problem to a doctor as soon as possible so that further work-up can be done. Then only the final diagnosis can be made and a proper treatment plan can be done for you.
