This can be annoying and cause inflammation. Try icing and rest if irritated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Most likely you have a subluxing iliopsoas tendon (snapping hip syndrome), which can cause popping sensations, but can usually be treated conservatively. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
