You may have RA or osteoarthritis. These two are most common causes of knee swelling and pain. You may need pain killers such as Celecoxib and glucosamine to improve joint conditions. But you also need to see a rheumatologist or orthopedist.
Usually the pain can be relieved by cortisone. If you don't get better, you'll need to take an MRI to see of there is ligament tear or joint injury. Home treatment is not suggested for you before the real diagnosis is obtained.
