Can someone give a description of these? Is it just joints that crack?

My tendon friction rubs sounded like hinges that needed oil. It was as if you could hear the tendons moving against each other and that they needed lubricant between them. I had no cracking sounds. I had them in my wrists and ankles.

Hi Tbhof,


Thankfully, I've never suffered with tendon friction rubs. However, I've included a link to our medical page on the subject, to give you some more information about them.
