Rest.: When you sprained your ankle, did you follow your Doctor's instructions about waiting to bear weight and work out? Even if you're in great shape, when a muscle, ligament, tendon is sprained, it can take several months before they are back to 100%. If you push too much too soon, you can decrease the actual healing that happen. Ease off the work outs and see your Doctor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I sprained my ankle 2 monthss ago and there was a loud popping sound. I was cleared to play 4 days later. Now when i run it feels like stabbing. Why?
Popping: A popping sound during ankle spring does not always signify a significant problem such as a break or tear, but it certainly could represent some type of fracture or ligamentous tear. The question is who cleared you to play and what imaging was done. If your ankle still bothers you i would recommend seeing an orthopedic surgeon for an examination and possibly repeat imaging.
