In brief: R/o instability

The mechanical problem of knee instability needs to be evaluated by a rheumatologist who will not just look for cruciate ligament and meniscus problems.

In brief: MANY POSSIBILITIES

Mindy1 there are many possibilities.
Most commonly this can be a flare of arthritis, especially because of the swelling. The swelling is a sign of a problem in the knee joint and not usually just overuse. You should have xrays and see a doctor.
