My ankles and knees make a loud, popping/grinding sound when I bend them. My left ankle pops and makes a grinding sound when I move it around. Both of these are very painful. Sometimes when I\\\\\\\'m walking my knees will pop and I have to stop because it is so painful. I have sprained my left ankle before and was told to use crutches for a week. I didnt. Idk if that has anything to do with it but this has been going on for a while now. I play sports and I don\\\\\\\'t want this to hinder me in any way. I\\\\\\\'m also only 13 so idk what to do. Please give me some advice as to why this is happening and how I can prevent it. Thank you!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. You should have used crutches after the injury as advised. It never too late for a teenage boy to regain his fitness. Just rest for a while, do as directed and get evaluated for the damage done. It shall resolve soon with slight rest and painkillers.

I hope it helps. stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.

Take care
