I was sitting with my back hunched forward and I felt a popping in the left side of my chest, near my heart, followed by a sharp pain. What happened?

Nerve: This appears to have been a pinched intercostal nerve or muscle that runs between two ribs. The popping feeling could have been from the ligament that holds the rib joint onto the sternum (breastbone). The sharp pain would be aggravated by a deep breath or cough. This situation should resolve in a few days, but see your md as needed. ...Read more

Labral tear?: It sounds like your hip started hurting with no history of trauma. Is that right? It could be a labral tear. An exam, xray and mri would help diagnose. If that is what it is you should avoid hip flexion (squats). Also a hip injection into the actual hip joint (not the bursa on the outside of the hip) would help. Try anti-inflams and see if they help. Instead of ibuprofen, maybe naprosyn. ...Read more
