Knee strain without pain or bruising

Patient : My name is alex, and i was told from a Dr, that i had a knee sprain. this is what happened. I was mopping a floor now, this floor was about 30,000 sq ft, and it might even be bigger then that, it was a bakers super store. well first night i did this, next afternoon when i got up it was a little stiff, both knees, well i thought no big deal just got alittle work out night before,lol. well i did the floor again next night, stupid me and i woke up the following afternoon and i couldnt bend either knee. they were that swollen so i just wrapped them up for a couple of days, and it went down. atleast enough to where i can bend them now. this happened a couple years ago. well they still swollen but i can bend them but if i strain them to much they will swell back up again to where i can not bend them. so my question is, since right now i dont have ins, what would you recommend? any suggestions would be appreciated. sincerly, alex..
