Back/Rib popping/cracking, pain left arm
I have had this problem for about 2 years, I sit at my computer allot, no other health problems, just this feeling almost always on the upper, left side of my back, around the left sholder blade.
When I move my left arm up, or streach it forward, or sometimes just breath in, I can feel and hear it crack/pop.
If I take in a very deap breath slowly, I can sometimes hear it pop a few times, then for a few moments it feels better.
I also sometimes have pain in my upper left arm.
I can even put my right hand about in the middle of my back, and I can feel my back popping with my hand where my back hurts.
Sometimes the problem seems to be under my left arm and I can also feel my rips poping there too when I breath in.
However, sometimes, I feel great, usualy when I first wake up in the morning. What should I do? X-Rays? Do you know if chest and back X-rays are very harmful because of the radiation? ThanksMike Austin
