My arm and leg on one side of my body have been popping for the last month.

When I lift my arm above horizontal it pops and when I do leg lifts my leg pops.

I am pretty much vegan (sans honey), can anyone think of anything that

I may lack in my diet to make this happen? Or suggest a supplement?

My joints do this all the time. They actually feel better when they do pop. I never thought anything of it though.

Mine go more like click, click, click, especially when I'm doing Pilates...particularly my hip joints.

It's harmless. Has nothing to do with diet. And it's no reason to take a supplement.

It's air bubbles (so I'm told) and nothing to be concerned with.

popping is usually normal. if there is pain associated it needs more attention. since it has been happening just recently and on one side of your body, you are most likely just out of alignment, this happens from normal activities like driving, using the computer and often from sleeping. yoga is a great way for alignment and posture! also if you are concerned with joint health, glucosamine and msm are supplements you can take that help joints (not as easy to find vegan MSM as its usually derived from shell fish, but its out there)

Thanks for the help. Now everything is cracking (or popping)! Shoulders, arms, back, etc. I feel almost certain that it is due to swtiching from vegetarian to vegan many months ago. I am going to follow your advice luvourmother, getting Deva Vegan Vitamins Glucosamine, MSM, CMO.

Any other suggestions are appreciated!

If you're really worried, I would go to the doctor. Also make sure that you're getting enough calcium, vitamin D, magnesium and zinc. (all those good bone builders). Are you experiencing any pain with the popping?
