Fell, smacked knee, swelling, pain. What should be done?

I fell and smacked my knee on a curb corner with a metal rim on it and though i can walk with little pain and go up and down the stairs i cannot kneel down AT ALL. I tried today (3 days post injury) and fell on my face. Only had swelling the first day and no color of bruising . It throbs most at night and i cant stant to touch it. Wondering if it is just a bad bruis or a fracture . Er waits are crazy here and i dont want to wait ten plus hours for a bruise . What do you think?
