Have tingling in chest and back. Sometime followed by chest pain or constantly hearing some sort of "ticking" inside me. What could this be? Had xrays

?: Interesting set of symptoms. The tingling suggests cervical root neuritis which could also cause chest pain. The ticking is hard to associate. You list "drainage" and "head pain" in your conditions: makes me think you may have serous otitis media causing the ticking .If so, not much to do but wait it out. ...Read more

Slightly Torn ACL, No Surgery, Hearing pops and hurts, have to rest for 10. Is this popping sound normal?  Should I be worried that its getting worse?

ACL tears can be associated with other knee injuries like meniscal tears and cartilage injury. Recommend MRI and eval by ortho surgeon ...Read more

30mins after eating my gut sounds noisy.Suffering from fatigue&weight loss.Colonoscopy clear, worried about smallcell lung cancer secrting hormones?

Unlikey: Small cell lung cancer is not subtle. This would be way down on my list of possibilities, along with other paraneoplastic GI syndromes. With fatigue, weight loss, and a rumbling gut, I'd check you for malabsorption / maldigestion, gluten enteropathy, maybe Whipple's, Crohn's, giardiasis, pancreatic insufficiency from tumor / adult onset cystic fibrosis, a few others. ...Read more
