In brief: See details

You need to go beyond a plain x ray to an mri, especially if the symptoms are not improving.
Have an orthopedist evaluate the problem.

In brief: MRI

Might need an mri.
Mris are more sensitive to look deeper in the knee (e.g. At the meniscus, ligaments, etc, can also look at other places around the knee such as the lower hamstring tendons).
