Brief Answer:
Can be due to arthritis.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

A severe knee pain with swelling of the leg can be due to arthritis, bursitis or DVT. Proper diagnosis needs a direct examination and few investigations like X-ray and color Doppler of the leg. Till then mild pain killers, rest hot compress, application of local analgesic gel and a knee brace can help.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
