A:   Hi
Thanks for your query
I have gone through your query and understand your concern.Your present problem is unrelated to your old injury. You need to do MRI of your knee. Till then you can take an analgesic such as ibuprofen for pain relief.Elevation of limb can be helpful in reducing swelling.
Hope your query get answered.
Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
