    Crepitus in most joints

    I'm 41 years old (female) and have had no injuries related to bones. Initially, I heard crepitus in my right shoulder while rotating my arm backwards in November 2017. It was not painful. Recently in July 2018, the right shoulder became painful. Similar symptoms started in my left shoulder. In the same month, both my knees became swollen and I could hear crepitus, and my knee joints started feeling tender while walking.

    I consulted various GPs and all said it is osteoarthritis. They've done an x-ray, ultrasound and blood tests. All blood tests came normal and it's not rheumatoid arthritis. In August 2018, my left elbow has also started hurting. I can feel pain as there's bone to bone grinding when I straighten my left arm. I hear clicking or snapping sounds with any fast movements of hands. I hear clicking in my left jaw also when I yawn or chew from that side. I am very concerned and consulting several doctors but none can indicate what's wrong or when it will get better.
