Patient :When I tense my arm and then straighten it, i can hear a bunch of quick little pops/cracks in my elbow, follow by a bigger pop/crack. The little pops are painful, but they stop after the bigger pop. It happens every time..... It starts when my arm is at roughly 115-125 degrees, 180 being completely straight, and ends at about 145-155 degrees... Help? Note: I am a wrestler, football player, and also used to run track, play baseball, soccer, and hockey. I noticed it maybe 3 or 4 months ago.
Symptoms: Cracking/Popping Elbow, Elbow pain when tensed
