sudden popping/clicking in right side of back when breathing?!

Hi guys,

Randomly as I have been sitting and relaxing, I have felt a popping/clicking in my back on the right side every time i breathe in and it's really concerning me. It doesn't hurt me to breathe nor does it hurt at all. It only happens in certain positions, but it just happened randomly and am wondering what it could be? Any suggestions? I couldn't find anything when looking it up either. Thank you for your help!

It can be a viral or a bacterial infection. My advice is to have steam inhalations.

Put 3 drops of thyme & 3 drops of tea tree oil in a bowl of boiling water.

Put a china bowl in a plastic bowl for safety. Then a towel over your head. Inhale gently, do this for 15 minutes 4 times a day.

Warm regards

Not being a doctor, I do advise first seek a physician opion first. However it sounds like on of your ribs is out of place. Common, though it sounds alarming. After exercising make sure to stretch your ypper body. Especially your back. It should readjust on its own.
