Do you have an injury? Possible causes are 

  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury 
  • Medial Collateral Ligament injury
  • Cartilage/Meniscus Tear
  • Arthritis
  • Chondromalacia Patella.

Based on your condition, I suggest you go to the ER, since we don't know if the swelling is induced by effusion or tissue injury and this condition is really bad. 

You should go to see an orthopedist and get a knee MRI scan. Without the MRI result, no exact suggestions can be given. Almost any knee problem could cause knee pain and swelling.
