Going for an orthopaedic examination is adviced.
Check your blood sugar for Diabetes. What is your age?

Sometimes with stress and stiffness due to immobility these problems occur.
If you are in your BMI levels and do mild exercise it is always fine.

Take an orthopaedic appointment for a routine examination.

Take care!

You have to take an orthopaedician appointment for proper examination to be sure that you have no problem.
As such at your age you will not have anything, there is no fear of arthritis even.
Try to exercise, swimming or whatever form of sports you enjoy to get yourself into normal BMI and get junk food out of your life.
This is the cause of Cholesterol!
Take care!

I have reacurring locking in my left elbow which has been happening for 2 years now. I havent had any trauma to it so so not know why it started to lock. Nothing specific makes it lock it just happens very randomly. I have had an MRI scan and a CT scan on the elbow both came back clear. I also had a key hole exploratory operation on it with nothing found and yet it continues to lock and hurt when it does so.

Any idea what it could be would be most appreciated?

My elbow clicked, and locked, At a school trip. I got taken to hospital, they said I have a joint problem. This though may not be the reason, i found out that if your elbow joint/bone had maybe even slightly cracked when you were little (baby/toddler) it may have not been discovered and treated it, now is getting you back by sometimes locking in place. Hope I helped, this is very painful and I would get it checked as soon as possible
