Treat or test: If you have joint pain with normal x-rays the next step would be to treat the symptoms with anti-inflammatories, rest, ice and time; consider physical therapy and/or injection of corticosteroid, and also consider MRI for further diagnsotic value. If you had a significant trauma then I would recommend MRI and if not initial treatment wouldn't change with MRI and I'd start with the basics listed.
