I sprained my ankle SAT. It swelled up on top of foot & in front of ankle bone. I RICEd it and no more swell.. when i walk it makes/feel big pop?
Popping with sprain: One of the hardest things to do after an ankle sprain is to eliminate the swelling. Deep swelling can linger for an average 4 months post sprain, and this can cause a popping sensation. I like RICE, especially twice daily 15 minute ice packs and once daily contrast bathing. If the popping does cause pain, then definitely see a specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

They don't: Bones on top of foot do not hurt for no reason. There has to be a reason. There could be the beginning of a stress fracture. It could be from tendonitis.

Possible: If you had an injury it may be a fracture. Not all protruding bony prominences are fractures. The prominence may be as a result of a normal anatomical variant of that bone. It could be a compensatory change of the bone in the area due to soft tissue contractures or a biomechanical abnormality, or it may be due to an underlying bone tumor. Get seen by a professional to determine the cause. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
