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

About 5 weeks ago I fell an landed on my left knee as I was transferring from a wheelchair to a chair. (I am a below the knee amputee in the other leg but not diabetic). I landed on the knee and the hip. I still have swelling and pain around the knee cap. This is the knee that I had ACL /MCL repair back in 2007 when I was hit by car crossing the street. The knee has always been slightly swollen. I suspect I have stressed it being an amputee but I wonder what sort injury I could have this far out. The pain isn t constant. I can walk with my usual walker. I only had 1 instance of instability. I can bend and straighten the knee find. I can climb steps but going down steps is painful.
