My low lumbar cracks (or pops) and it also there is a pinching pain that goes through my eight butt cheek from it. Pinched nerve? Sciatic maybe?
Scitica: The popping and cracking may not be related unless there is pain in the lower back. A pinched nerve in the lower back can cause discomfort and pain in the gluteal region (buttocks). Irritation of the actual sciatic nerve such as from piriformis syndrome may do this as well. Referred pain unrelated to the sciatic is also possible.

Pinched nerve in the seventh vertebrae of my spine and i recently started getting numbness in my toes and now a sharp pain in my butt. R they related?
See doctor to verify: Usually anything related to pinched nerves in the neck (cervicals) have implications with the upper extremities, and likewise with the lumbars. So, normally the 7th vertebrae would not affect your toes. See your doctor, so they can do a mini-neurological check, and see what's causing that, as it may be more related to the sharp pain in your butt, rather than your neck. You need a physical exam. ...Read more

So, it's good to have your doctor take a look at it, and make sure there's nothing there on physical exam, before s/he does a musculoskeletal exam. So, it could be many things until it's examined physically. Then, your diagnosis will be forthcoming. ...Read more
