Good Morning, I am not sure we can help you - this is just for lung problems. Perhaps health unlocked have a more appropriate community. TAD x


TADAW.. Sozzzz.can't get used to this new site!!!!!!I've chest props too....xxxtake care!!!:-\ :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)


Nor me not sure about it at all!! Still can't help with popping noises though the only thing I could recommend is acupuncture I have found it so useful for shoulder problems xx


I don't think the loud pop is dangerous. We have sacks full of synovial liquid and bones are cushioned by this.

Even though, I found this on wikipedia:

I also found this piece of advice to strengthen your hip muscle (Ask to be referred to your physiotherapist; he'll know how to strengthen muscles)

If you are concerned ring your GP. Or if GP not available, ring 111.


I'm not sure of your age. But have you ever had a hip replacement? it's uncommon for hips to dislocate unless they have been replaced. And it would cause severe pain in most cases. It's not really my area, so unsure what it could be. I recommend calling an ambulance for an assessment and it will be easier for them to transport you to a facility than it may be for you to get yourself there? And they can give you decent pain relief. Good luck.
