Thanks for writing to us.

I am Dr XXXXXXX Gandhi, I am orthopaedic surgeon and spine specialist.
I have studied your case.

These symptoms suggest rheumatoid arthritis ,you need to undergo blood investigation for rheumatoid arthritis.There are specific medicine for rheumatoid arthritis ,can be started after confirming diagnosis from specialist orthopaedic surgeon.

Till that time take tab methylcobalamine 1500mcg once daily and painkiller, with calcium and vit D.

Do not worry for snapping [pop]sounds from your joints till they are painfully snapping

Take care,
