Hey Tubby !!

Are you still in pain, when you move or when you are still ? If so maybe you should consider go see an orthopeadic surgeon and find out what's wrong.
Feel free ask if there's something you wonder.

Noises could be caused by so many things.  It can be simple inflammation, a torn ligament or cartilage.  I would definitely get it checked out before you do any more damage that may end up as a permanent thing.  Unless the pain is real mild then try staying away from the running for a week or two and see if it fixes itself.   Good luck!
