I think you have more than a sprain. Time to go see a doctor. Personally, I would never have waited when there were popping and cracking sounds. Sprains don't make noises.

Yep, I think it is time to have it looked at. Painful to touch is not a good sign. In fact that is one of the tests for a break is point tenderness. Cracking and more pain when the boot comes off is sounding kind of serious.

For what it's worth, a bad sprain can be so much worse than a break. From the sound of it, you likely either severely stretched or possibly tore some tendons/ligaments/muscles in your ankle when you rolled it. I did the same thing about 10 years ago when I came off a horse. I am a lot like you, unless bones are sticking out or there's arterial blood spray, then just tape an aspirin to it and keep going LOL. So, when I sprained mine, I just kept on going and endured the pain. I kept it wrapped in an ACE bandage at first and eventually started using one of those lace-up ankle support braces like a lot of basketball players wear.

Unfortunately, after you roll it that severely once, then in the future it is much easier to do it again because the entire joint is loose. I still have some trouble with mine.

I agree, time for you to see a doctor! Sounds to me it is probably more than a sprain.

A few years ago I took a wrong step and fell down a staircase, thought I sprained my ankle and continued on with my day. After a few days, it stopped hurting and I never gave it a second thought until a few months later whenever I moved my ankle it would always make this popping sound. Turns out I fractured it, didn't heal completely right, and now rubs up against another bone and makes that popping noise. Doctor told me the only way to fix it is surgery.

Surgery would suck.
I've had surgery on this foot/ankle 3 times already because I cut it on glass and cut tendons. :(

Um... are you in denial when you get hurt then? If you already have a history of injury, then you injure it again -- well, it doesn't make any sense whatsoever to just let it go, especially given the symptoms you have described.

Are you going to go to the doctor?
    01-16-2013, 08:15 PM
No. I don't like going unless its totally needed and right now I don't have insurance so that really adds to it

No insurance definitely makes it tough for you Southerners. :( But, if you don't pay now you will probably end up paying more later, and not just in dollars. I hope you get your ankle looked after.

So glad that we don't have to factor that financial thing in when deciding if we are hurt enough to go get something seen

I agree with everyone else, go get checked out, you could be storing up trouble for the future there.
