Please tell me what I need to do reduce pain levels.

Patient : 2 weeks ago my rt knee popped and I went to an urgent care and xrays indicated soft tissue damage behind paella and I was given a brace and anti-inflammatory and pain meds. This past Friday it started locking up and every time I stood up it would pop and cause a sharp pain. This morning I wasn't able to get up as my knee wouldn't bend without causing severe pain but after 5 minutes and much pain I was able to stand. I'm in severe pain, what should I do?
Symptoms:  Pain, popping of knee and knee locking up
