I have had ankle pain for awhile. They feel like they need to pop and do constantly and they hurt most of the time. Could i need surgery?

In brief: BOTH?

You mention 'they', so it's both? In addition to a musculoskeltal reason, maybe rheumatologic etiology should also be considered.

In brief: Possible.

Chronic ankle pain might just need an exercise program but you could also have loose pieces or something could benefit from surgery.
