Detailed Answer:
Hello dear
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.com
I have evaluated your query thoroughly .

* Seems most likely to be systemic circulatory disturbances .

Kindly provide some more details so that I can answer your query completely .

1. Cramping - only before 2 days started suddenly , severity , duration , frequency
whole day , more after activity , aggravating , relieving factors .
2. Swelling - both sides behind knee or one side , size , shape , color or
temperature changes of overlying skin , progress since appearance ,
any change in relation with posture .
If possible & no objection , high resolution photograph of the swelling as an
attachment would help far better to understand the issue .
3. Walking is normal or restricted , painful
4. Other systemic problems as abdominal pain , fever ,breathing problems or
other .
5. Other systemic diseases as diabetes or high BP .
6. Smoking .

Awaiting for your response .
