I rolled my ankle skating really bad on dec 1st doing an ollie over 7 decks. i tried to skate it 2 weeks into healing but then i noticed pain in my knee. too 2 more weeks to heal and the knee is fine and ankle is fine. but now theres like a popping sound where i sprained my ankle and popping a little below my knee cap and above my shin every time i point my foot (pointing it downward). i sprained my ankles before but this is the first time thats ever happened. Anybody else experiencing something like this? let me know.
thank you =]

My bad I corrected it. It pops where i sprained my ankle, and it pops in between my kneecap and shin at the same time when i point my foot downward
eh. joints man. everytime i bend my knees they pop. if it starts hurting give your doc a call

yeah man, i hate injuries, im just really paranoid about the knee because thats one of our most important and most complex joints. I hear if you mess that up its all over. It doesnt hurt, although, it used to only when I bent. It stopped though. Some people called it "Jumpers knee" but like i said im just being paranoid =]
I have knees that pop alot.
I sprained my ankle severely. I severed most of my tendons and ligaments, and it swelled so bad, the doctor couldn't feel my bone. Luckily, it was my right foot, so I can still skate, I just don't do much switch/nollie tricks.
Your cartilage does that after it heals. It happened to me, except for when I rolled it. You could just be getting very tense when you point it down, causing your muscles and other tissue to press hard on your cartilage. Other than that, you should be fine. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but I'm sure it's not what you'd want.
I understand your paranoia. It happens to the best of us. We don't want premature skating (before it fully heals) to ruin our whole careers, do we? No. Also, just try and pay a visit to your doctor, or someone you know who's medically certified (i.e. nurse, physicians assistant). Whether it's serious or not, only you can really determine.
