back and neck always popping pain morning

hey there, I have had 2 herniated discs that ruptured and had 2 disectomies. one when I was young and one about 4 years ago. I am 46. I have pretty obnoxious pain all over in the morning…predominately in the lower back. I had l-5 and l-4 operated on… It is in that area.
I have been diagnosed with fibro and am on meds for it…which does make it more tolerble…but I still have back pain. throughout the day my neck, shoulders and back are constantly making popping and cracking noises. sometimes it is helpful if I have pain in that area…say my shoulder. the thought that it could be arthritis has crossed my mind…thoughts?

    Dear Crystal,
    The word arthritis simply means joints that are inflamed. You have obvious damage to your vertebral joints and they are showing indication of degeneration or inflammation (arthritis) See a Chiropractic, exercise improve your diet and you may see a healthy improvement.
