Do i have ankle sprain?

When I stepped out of the shower I heard my left ankle pop and could barely walk all day. No swelling or bruising but one day I can walk on it OK and the next I limp and have difficulty walking? A sprain? What should I do? Thanks, Karen

Hello Karen,
A pop from a joint could arise from a loose body within, a flap of cartilage(osteochondritis dissecans), ligament injury or a snapping tendon. A ligament injury is associated with severe pain, swelling and inability to bear weight. So its unlikely to be a ligament injury. For the other options to be assessed, an Orthopaedic consult would be essential.
