Its important to get xrays of the knees when patients have knee pain associated with swelling. Please get an xray of the knee done and report back. In the meantime minimize straining the knee. If the knee is warm, put ice pack over the knees. You will have to visit an ortho surgeon to get a prescription for pain meds. I cannot prescribe meds as Practo prohibits me from doing so.
