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.
