A gallbladder problem can cause pain radiating into the right side as can a lung and kidney problem. A detailed exam and appropriate studies can usually tell the cause. Consider being checked.

Should i be concerned if I am hearing popping noises by heart? I also have burning sensation on chest, arms, pins and needles, muscle loss,

You need to see a physician and have an MRI ordered to evaluate if you have cord compression from a disc herniation or some other secondary cause. ...Read more
