Help popping elbow!

04/19/2007

Question:

I am 14, and about three weeks ago, my elbow started popping. The popping sounds rip like. About 2 weeks ago my hand started to feel numb, like when your leg falls asleep. This problem has continued. What should I do?

Answer:

Because of the unexplained numbness and tingling, it is very important that you see your family physician about this issue.  These signs and symptoms could be the beginning of a larger problem, so it is important to be evaluated by a physician as soon as possible.
