The swelling might be from gout, ask your doctor to check your uric acid, to see and know for sure. Gout is caused from eating to much  red meats, drinking alcoholic beverages, and  eating too much chocolate, which  is  not being broken down in your blood stream, and your uric acids, the build up or swelling is like a deposit build up in ankle and knee, have it checked by your dr.
