Joint Cracking
Hello. I am a 14 year old male. And my joints have recently been popping excessively. I have researched many diseases and their symptoms. And my condition doesn't seem to fit of their descriptions. Popping occurs in the entire hand, wrist, foot, and ankle. There is no pain but more of a numbness. My family suggests it is all just " growing pains".  But I just don't know. When there's cracking in my fingers I often feel stretched with a light "ache". Then 10 minutes later mt fingers & toes are stiff all over again. Also my feet and hands have always been freakishly thin compared to the rest of my body. I am 5'7 and 135 pounds. I suffer from being flat footed & run 6 miles 3-4 times a week in my freetime. I also do football & pushups. I wonder if exercise is causing trauma to my body. Does cold weather have a play in this? So far I've ignored it pretty well, but it is so CONSTANT. Can anyone please educate me on this terrible nuisance?
          Thanks.

I mean; it's as if my bones are always  displaced, and shifting back and forth. My cartilage always feels jiggly.
