Rotator cuff: It is possible to have rotator cuff problems with normal x-rays. An MRI scan is more sensitive.

Elbow popping: Can be due to some tendons rubbing over eachother or a bony prominence while under tension, or due to some distraction inside of the joint during lifting that allows gas to escape from the joint fluid (similar to cracking our knuckles).

I have gerd/acid reflux yesterday I feel like I have multiple bubble popping in the left chest area no pain could this be hernia or something serious
Not sure.: Your symptoms are nonspecific enough that it is difficult to tell for sure what is going on just from your short description. If you do know you already have Gerd, I would try taking a liquid antacid such as Mylanta when you get these symptoms, just to see if it helps temporarily. If it does, did you know that the problem is likely to be acid related. If they persist, see your G.I. doctor. ...Read more
