Can you get galvanic activity if you have a lot of crowns side by side? Thank you.

Maybe. Needs further information, what kind of crowns?

It's possible then. However if you've had them a long time I'd expect it to have got better as the outer surfaces oxidised.
A quick fix for galvanic issues is to eat a soft boiled egg, the yolk causes a sulphate deposit to form on active metals...
