As to why your bones a clicking, this seems likely:

Quote:
The funny thing about bones clicking is that it’s not the actual bone that clicks! The clicking noise comes from the joints where the bones meet. You’ll hear this noise sometimes when they move.

The fluid in our joints makes sure the bones move against each other smoothly. Over time small gas bubbles form in the fluid. When the bones at the joint are moved the pressure pops them. This makes the clicking sound. Some people pull their finger joints to make them click as a nervous habit. Most people notice that their joints click from time to time. This could be in every day activities and in general is nothing to worry about.
Sometimes minor damage to the joint, such as a sprain may cause the joint to start clicking. This is because it is inflamed. Once this has healed the clicking should stop. If you have pain, swelling or redness with clicking, or you have any difficulty with movement then the next step is to see a GP.

From what I read, there doesn't seem to be any way to stop your joints from clicking. If it's causing that much of a problem, maybe see a doctor about it?

I guess thats why its happening more than usual.

Is it incredibly painful (what kind of pain is it accompanied by)? Is your wrist swollen at all? When does it click?
If it clicks when you rotate it, it could be a variety of things. Have you broken your wrist before or sprained your wrist multiple times? If you have, it's likely that you tore the TFCC (triangular fibrocartilagenous complex). However, I really can't diagnose it (obviously), but it sounds like what I experienced when I tore the cartilage in my wrist.
If you've got a wrist brace, go ahead and use it. If it doesn't get better after a few days, I'd definitely see a doctor.
If the pain is bad enough, go ahead and see a doctor about it now. They'll probably do an x-ray first, and if nothing can be found, they'll probably do an MRI to see if it's a torn TFCC.
Assuming that it is what I think it is. But don't freak out. Clicking can be a symptom of something very minor, as mentioned above.
