Fitness Minutes: (44)

Two months ago I started jogging. For a few weeks I was running almost 3 miles nonstop with no problems. One night while I was out, I was a mile and a half into my run when I felt a stretching that got tighter and tighter until I felt a very sharp pain to where I couldn't run. When I walk, it's no problem. I start running, I felt like my knee was going to blow out.
So, I rested it for almost a MONTH. This was hard for me. My dad has experience with knee injuries and advised me to stay off it as much as possible for a while. I thought maybe it was Runner's Knee.
I go out tonight, walk a little over a mile and decide okay, I feel good, I'm gonna go for a light job. 3/4 mile into my jog I feel like my knee is gonna blow out again. Then, like last time, it feels fine when I'm walking. What gives? Should I see a doctor? I'm getting extremely discouraged as I finally found an exercise I enjoy and I can't even do that anymore.
