Snap, Crackle, Pop

it's such an unattractive habit that i seem to have formed.  i couldn't tell you how many people have told me that I will have horrible arthritis when i'm older.  i even checked with my doctor would said the two aren't related.  it turns out that an orthopedic surgeon discovered that i am double jointed in my hands so i have extra loud cracking knuckles.  Every hour or so, i get a cramping in my fingers and i just gotta crack my knuckles.  since it grosses so many people out, i feel a little self-conscious about my snap-crackle-pop!

Maybe there are other ways to relieve the cramping in your fingers, if the knuckle-cracking makes you feel self-conscious? Or maybe a different technique for cracking your knuckles might help. The cracking is largely due to gas compression in the joints, so maybe experimentation will reveal different volume levels!
