See a doctor: It could be a stress fracture (these can happen with no known trauma), arthritis, tendinitis among other things. A proper diagnosis can establish what and where the problem is, and get you started on recovery.

Tendinitis: Swelling in ankle radiating up to knee may be associated with tendon and muscle of the posterior tibial tendon. Since caused by lack of support in arch you need supportive shoes and try otc super feet. See podiatrist.
