Popping in my elbow
My elbow can not be fully extended and when i bend it makes a nasty grinding sound. I also have pains running down my forearm. I was wondering if it should be checked out or just ignore it and see if it heals by itself?
I would advise you to get your elbow evaluated by a doctor or orthopaedic surgeon if the symptoms do not resolve in a reasonable time frame, 7-10 days.
