sounds like it could be an ITB problem, but your best bet is to get your GP to refer you to a physio, or if you don't want to wait, just pay for your own private physio session, although it's probbaly not a bad idea to have your GP look over it first anyway.
it's difficult for other runners, even ones with similar injury experiences, to accurately diagnose your injury from a description on a forum. go get proper expert help before it gets worse. good luck
As AG says, it could well be the ITB.
I get similar knee pain from time to time, and if I use a foam roller to work on my ITB it does go away.
This may be worth a try if you have a roller, or access to one at a gym. This sort of thing.
BTW, it hurts!
