What is the cause of swelling in feet?

I was kneeling down on a concrete floor when I could sense a crunching effect on my right knee. The next morning I woke up witha swollen knee. Pain was localised to the front and mostly side of knee. When i walked on that leg no pain was noticeable only stiffness. A few days later the swelling went down abot half way but what looks like bruising on the right side of the knee and some pain was felt down the right side of the leg. Today five days into the injury i woke up with the right side of my foot swollen with what looks likes bruising.Possibley blood? What do you think. Thanks,Vince

Hi..

While you kneel down you hurt your tendon and irritated a Bursa..a fluid filled sac located in the knee...
This is the reason for your swelling and pain in the outer aspect of the knee..
Since you had pain and other knee is also hurt while kneeling down...it got inflammed and bruised when you start loading it...
Don't worry...

I recommend you to do

Lot of icing in both knees... frequently..
Gently massage over front thigh muscle...not on the knee... slightly above the knee..
keep your knee wrapped with compression bandage...
If you have any Anti inflammatory tabs that were prescribed to you before have them...

As far as possible don't load your knees too much...for a while..

Hope this is helpful for you
kindly revert back in case you need any further clarification in this regard...
