I sprained my ankle recently, and it is cracking a good many times. Should I be concerned?

Six years ago I had a 2 inch spiral break to my right ankle. 5 days ago, I twisted the same ankle. It was swollen and I could barely walk on it. Since then, I have gotten xrays on the ankle but forgot to ask the Doctor if I should be concerned with a lot of cracking.

I think you should have your ankle checked. Although I've never broken my ankle, I've had my fair share of stress fractures and my ankle sometimes pops or cracks.

Here's some information on Chronic Lateral Ankle Instability that might help you.
