ankle pain

I had reconstructive surgery on the lateral side of my right ankle about 12 years ago. A few days ago I started getting this wierd pain along the ligament where I had that surgery. When I flex my ankle I get a crepitus feeling. It feels like there is "bubble wrap" inside or something fluidy. It's not swollen, and it's not bruised. And I didn't twist it at all. But it's very uncomfortable to walk on, and I have been icing it and trying to keep off of it as much as possible. I can tell that something just isn't quite right. What could be going on??

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
