What could be causing my right elbow to pop and crack and have pains in it?

In brief: Inflammation...

Any old injury to the elbow? This could be from inflammation from over use, arthritis in the elbow, inflamed tendons snapping over each other. If this isn't from an acute injury, has been going on for weeks to months, and ice/ibuprofen isn't helping, you should probably get checked out by your doc.
Good luck!
