Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Most likely arthritis related.
Gout is another possibility.
Infection is another possibility.
Over the counter Naproxen can be tried twice daily and also ice pack can be applied few times daily.
Please go to the urgent care if the swelling worsens.
