almost 2 years ago i fractured the growth plate in my anke, it healed. then exactly a year after i broke it, i sprained it, just my luck. now whenever i walk up stairs or rotate my foot in circles i hear popping noises. if i put my hand right above my ankle i can feel something moving, that creates one of the popping noises but the other one is from my ankle. it doesn't really hurt, but its starting to kind of make me wonder what could be causing this cause i dont think its normal, cause my other ankle doesnt do this.
Well it would be difficult to comment on the cause specifically without a detailed clinical evaluation. Possibilities include joint instability, ligament injury, loose bodies, degenerations etc. It would be best to have this examined by your orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management, if required.
Hope this helps.
