Rheumatologist 's  Response
Single joint swelling called monoarthritis always needs evaluation by an orhopedic surgeon/rheumatologist for ruling out infections or other kind of arthritis.Other causes could be gout/reactive arthritis etc..In the mean time you can take some analgesics for pain relief,but the primary cause has to be found out.

Hi well come to HCM.
You have not mentioned your age and any associated conditions like DM,HBP or any
drug history if you have consumed in recent past. Any since swelling and bruised may
be at times due to unnoticed injury, happens in many Pts or positional twist also can
at times becomes injurious.At preset you may take NSID like ibuprofen for 3 to 4 days
and no relief may consult orthopedic surgeon to finalise the things like osteoartheitis,
serum sickess,pyoarhritis etc. Thanks
