Pain in knee

I run around 3-5 km daily, but within 10 days of starting my routine I use to get pain in my outer lateral side of the leg which is around knee area.lf I take rest for some days the pain will vanish but it will start paining again if I start running. I had fall on that leg sideways in Dec 2014
