A thorough exam by one's primary care doctor is a good place to start. Symptoms sound bad enough to go for an ER exam at the time there is pain and swelling. It can be helpful to take pictures of how things look BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER the symptoms. Sounds like something that should not wait to be evaluated.
