So, I'm really grateful I'm not the only person addicted to popping her knuckles.
I pop my toes to no end. I can pop them multiple times in succession, and sometimes I will pop them to the point that I get muscle spasms in my feet– which aren't very fun. (But regardless, I keep on popping.)
My other favorite is my jaw. I asked the dentist about it the other year, producing a very audible grinding/cracking sound--I can make short loud pops, or crack it more slowly which produces a long grating sound, but is just as satisfying. He told me I had TMJD, probably as a result of previous teeth-grinding when I was younger, and that I shouldn't pop it anymore. Of course, I can't stop.
If I pop my jaw, or most of my joints, I normally have to pop it a few more times until it feels alright, which definitely reminds me of OCD.
That's about it. Thanks!
If you are getting muscle spams then you should stop and withregarding your jaw, maybe you should take up your dentist's advice.
