Yes, if too tight: If you wrap your knee too tight which prevents the blood/lymph from returning from the foot/leg to your heart, yes you can have swelling. If you remove the wrapping and the swelling gets better, you got your anwswer. If the swelling is persistent and/or if you have pain in the leg, calf etc...Consult doc because you may have a blood clot etc... Good luck..
