Brief Answer:
You need to visit a doctor....

Detailed Answer:

You seem to be severe pain. A physical examination is essential to identify the cause.

You would start you on pain killer like Ibuprofen 400mg twice a day for 2-3 days before recommending investigation. You can try this; if there is no improvement, visit your physician / orthopedician for evaluation.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.
