You : You could try simple measures such as over-the-counter medication, like Ibuprofen or aleve; however, it seems to me that it might be worth your while to seek additional input from your primary care physician.

My arm crackle and pop almost every time when I open it but without pain. It's maybe something on the joint of my elbow (upside front). What is that?
Fluid dynamics: There are two main schools of thought as to cause of "joint noises." first being rapid displacement of fluid in the joint, which is noise is ongoing, may be an indicator of prior injury and self-protection, which should go away in time. Second being tendon / ligament laxity causing noises (possibly so far as subluxing joint, if follow chiropractic model)--that tends to worsen over time. ...Read more

I got elbowed in one of my two front teeth today, it hurts when I bite down on my lip, should i be concerned?
Sure: Any time you have trauma to your teeth you should be concerned. More often than not this will heal just fine, but in some instances, the trauma can cause the nerve in the tooth to die, necessitating root canal therapy. If the tooth is mobile, splinting may be indicated. A local dentist can advise you further. ...Read more

3 days ago had my blood drawn and my bicep feels like its ripping, burning. What could be wrong? 3 days ago I had 4 tubes of blood drawn out of my arm (where the arm bends in front of the elbow). Nurse took blood from the middle of my arm but the blood
I : I assume you had your blood drawn from the bend in the elbow, known as the antecubital space. The biceps tendon inserts into the forearm bone, the radius. On occasion, the needle can pass thru the front of the vein and then the back of the vein. During the period where the tourniquet is on, when the needle is pulled back (since you cannot get blood when the tip of the needle is thru the vein), then the hole in the back wall of the vein will bleed, but the blood will be contained in the space where the biceps tendon is. Afterwards, this causes pain and swelling. Over the next few days, like any bruise, the blood will break down, causing discoloration around the elbow area. Heating pads applied to the area will speed up the reabsorption of blood. ...Read more
