In brief: More eval/testing

With that type of pain, you will benefit from a very detailed exam to uncover the cause of your symptoms.
It's difficult to advise you of the potential problem with this very brief description. If x-rays are normal and the diagnosis is in doubt, then an MRI is often the next best test. For now, it sounds like crutches while upright, rest, ice and elevation would be wise before seeing a physician.

Agree with Dr. Holmes. At this time with this amount of pain and negative x-rays would recommend an MRI. Hope it improves
