This has been going on for a good 10 years and I am 25 years old. Every time I roll either ankle it cracks about 6 times. It had never bothered me until recently. Now, when I wake up in the morning, if I DON’T crack my ankles it feels stiff and uncomfortable. When I DO crack them, it still feels stiff and uncomfortable. It is now also beginning to hurt on the outside of each leg about 6-8 inches above each ankle. I am headed to my doctor next week, but I was wondering if anyone has any ideas here. My main concern is that this is causing damage to my ankles and they will get weaker as I get older.
