Pain is the commonest symptom. It can be persistent (occurs day and night; aggravated by certain movement).
Sometimes there may be hottness or abnormal clicking sound over the joint region.

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (消炎止痛藥) were useful in the acute management of such injuries. They can reduce the inflammation as well as relieve the pain. It is not an anaesthetic drug (麻醉藥). It is also not an antibiotic (抗生素).
Long term use of Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (such as aspirin) may lead to ulcer in the stomach. Long term use may also lead to other problems such as high blood pressure or kidney damage.

You probably injured some soft tissue (maybe ligament) during running.
If you didn't have the "click" in the past, the "click" should imply a new problem. If this is so, I advise you to see an orthopedic doctor to find out the exact cause. It is too simple to say what kind of drug/food can cure it. Maybe the treatment is not drug (but something else e.g. rest, physiotherapy)
