For starters...: Based on your post the first place you should go is to your primary care physician; although your complaints sound like there is a neurological component to them; the swollen rt knee needs looking at...There may be a vascular issue as well which is why the primary care doc is the place to start.

Nerve: Yes i would suggest you start with a neurologist to evaluate the numbness symptoms. The knee swelling may be related or a separate problem.
