Should I Be Concerned If Hearing My Spine Cracks When Breathing Deeply
A MySpondylitisTeam Member asked a question 💭

My rhuemy knows of the spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, bony islands, RA but not AS. I'm in a flare right now...the pain was just in my back but it has wrapped around my rib cage. When I breathe in deeply my spine cracks, should I be concerned about that? I'm using heat and ice as well as small pieces of oxy and Advil.
