My right knee keeps swelling without pain or with numbing pain. Could it be cause of diabeties run in family as well as arthritis ?

Hi doctor , I have been working out or doing Zumba twice a week and on the bicycle for about 3 months. My right knee keeps swelling without pain or with numbing pain and there is tightness in my thigh and calf muscle. When I am not working out knee still swells but does not bother me much when I am working out. When I am home and leg is straight swelling goes down over night, but once up again and start to move knee swells again. There is a difference in the tightness of the muscle on the right leg than on the left leg. I use to be a smoker and quit about 9 months ago, started eating healthier (more green veggies and fruits and plenty of water) cut out over a 3rd of sugar intake. Mother passed with Pancriate cancer, dad had mouth and lung cancer. Diabeties run in family as well as arthritis.

welcome to healthcare magic forum, in these cases mosltly it is synovitis it is accompanied arthritis,it dissappears because the synovial fluid acumulated in synovial
pouch which is located between the joint and has a pouch which does absorb the fluid which is generated but this execcive generation of fluid is due to erosion or pressure in the joints but exrecise also promotes fast absorption of the fluid generated
so you do not feel it but actually you are having erosion of joints,please sleep keeping
your levs elevated and consult with an orthopaedician for follow ups.
