X-ray shows nothing for any knee problems, but still have constant pain. I have recently gained weight and was wondering if that could be the problem. Then again, wouldn't both of my knees hurt not just one?

X-rays are pretty much useless for seeing most of the things that go wrong in your knee. All they see is bone, not soft tissue. For that you need an MRI. I don't know who told you your knees were fine but you should go see an orthopedic surgeon, get an MRI and get a proper diagnosis.
