I messed up my elbow somehow doing very heavy dips (i think). now i stopped lifting for about 1 and a half months, and it stopped hurting. Im getting back into pushing movements with my arms such as bench press, close grip bench press, and tricep pulldown. Im staying away from the dips , but thats besides the point...

I still have a slight pain when having my arm flexed and extending my elbow forward (like in a bench press motion). Also my elbow cracks quite loudly (just at random times) and more often than it did before. Should i stop all pushing movements? And do you think my elbow is ****ed for good?
