I injured my ankle falling down some steps in December 2012 I didn't go to my follow up appointment and took off my own cast as I assumed it would be fine .since then the pain seems to be getting more and more so and I was sat down the other day and went to move and my ankle made a loud crunch and it was very painful .and has become worse since especially when resting what should I do?

I think you know what to do, Ceri! Go back to the doctor who treated you.
Getting properly better after any condition, or injury is vital, otherwise you're faced with an injury leaving a permanent mark on you. Ankle fracture case file ...
What the diagnosis? Sprain? Fracture? Many fractures are missed on plain X-ray. I'd ask for a CT scan. Or MRI if his assessment is a soft tissue injury. But this sounds like bone.
I hope this contributes.
