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?
