My knee is swollen, and has been for 3 weeks

My knee is swollen, and has been for 3 weeks now. The swelling is above the kneecap, and around the inside of the knee.
My knee doesn't hurt, but when I lift my leg (like getting in to bed),I feel a strange pressure like the joint/ligaments behind the knee cap are injured.

My knee swelled up for no reason about two weeks ago. I went to the ER where they wrapped it and gave me a brace. They said it was some kind of arthritis and needed pressure. Now my ankle and foot are swollen beyond recognition. My knee still hurts but the swelling of my foot is unbearable

The back of my left knee is swoolen, it feels like a pulling and like it has to crack all the time, and it will. I can not Kneel on it. I have been putting ice on it every night.
