My husband just called while working heard 3 loud pops in

Customer Question

My husband just called while working heard 3 loud pops in arm nw can lift arm but not move sideways. Would this be a torn bicep possibly. I told him to put ice on it for right now.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: He is talking to his boss right now. He take only ambien for insomnia. I think they will send him to the doctors. He was lifting a heavy part as he does a/c work
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Not that I know of.
