clicking noise

Hello everyone,

I decided that I would get out today and do a little therapy so I was off to the mall to get some clothes for summer. As I was try on several pairs of shorts I kept hearing and feeling a clicking in my lower back every time I lifted my legs into the shorts. It doesn't hurt but I can feel it just the same and it creeps me out!!! Anyone experience this? By the way, I was gone 2 hrs and my back is killing me from the walking.

For you women out there who can relate, I have 30 pairs of high heels that I can no longer wear and just bought myself a pair of boring sandals for summer, you know the ones that are for made for comfort not style. Very depressed because I have some really nice stacked sandals!!! My sister will be very happy that she's getting them all. Lucky Bit@@!!!!!!!! Sorry for getting off the subject just needed to vent!!!


  • Shopping malls, galleries and museums are some of the worst floors for people with spine issues.

    Chances are, the sound you hear is probably a ligament or tendon that is getting a little bit hung up. When it releases, it makes a clicking sound. It is not bone against bone, if that's what you are worried about (unless you are that 1 in a million, "special" person). And I doubt very much it is something with your hardware. I have a similar situation and have asked about it several times to various health providers...and am always told the ligament answer.

    I can relate to the shoes. When I buy a new pair of flats, my husband always reminds me I have tons of shoes....I have to remind him I cannot wear most of them....Your sister will be very happy. How nice you have someone to give them to....
