shoulder popping/clicking/grinding
When I do front raises or lateral raises with dumb bells my left shoulder pops/grinds/click with pain.  Sometimes carrying my child or driving causes it to feel weak. Any clues to what it is?

Yep, sounds like a rotator cuff problem. Could be a tiny tear or simply the tendons in the area may be inflamed. You need an evaluation by a doctor, might include an x-ray and/or an MRI of the shoulder involved. If you have a PPO insurance, don't bother with a family doctor, head straight to a rheumatologist, he/she will evaluate and treat. If surgery is needed an orthopedic dr. will do it. Hopefully you don't need surgery. Maybe physical therapy or a cortisone shot.
