ITB pain - help!

I've been increasing my running in preparation for a half marathon distance event in the middle of March.

I got up to 16kms this weekend but towards the end my ITB got really sore by the outside of my knee and it's still the same.

I've read up a bit but there seems to be a difference of opinion in whether I should get my foam roller on it, or just on the muscles higher up. I've been icing the sore bit and taking antiinflammatories and have started some extra gluteal exercises. I've not run since.

Any other ideas what I could or should be doing to help? I really, really want to be fit int time for the event.

Probably worth investing in a physio. Good luck. x
