Knee pain after running

I feel pain in my left knee after long distance running(over 10km). The pain stays for a day or so, depending on the distance I ran.
Should I start using a knee sleeve? How do they work? Will it help? Are there any side effects?

Hi, stop running for few days, as it will aggravates your clinical symptoms. Due to mild inflammation, or soft tissue injury you have developed knee pain. If symptoms aggravates kindly consult orthopedician for further work up...
