Ankle popping and knee pain

Hello,

I'm 21 and have recently been having a lot of popping in my right ankle. This occurrence was followed by pretty bad knee pain. Lame! I feel the knee pain the most when bending and lifting my knee over half-way. I have always been very flat footed but never overweight. I also have a pretty athletic background and have never had any serious physical problems (except for an annoying pimple on the right side of my nose). Oddly, the cracking occurs in the ankle but the paint is primarily in the knee. weird.

Anyway, any home remedies or suggestions are appreciated! It's not like I can't function, but it'd definitely not the most pleasant thing to be striding about on cracking ankles!

Please be aware that I don't have insurance (thanks to our flowering economy!) and cannot afford to pay a doctor to tell me "well son, it seems that your ankle is popping. Lucky for you, I'm going to charge you both your arm AND leg so that burden is no longer!". I suppose if my knee cap falls off, I can always resort to duct tape! Well thanks in advance for any tips!

God Bless!
Michael
