I have osteoarthritis in my knee. Lately, there has been knee swelling on the inside of my leg. Is this serious?

Hi Cheryl. It is fairly common to get swelling with knee arthritis, which often fluctuates. There are various things you can try to treat a swollen knee such as elevating the leg when resting or wearing tubigrip compression bandage. Getting the swelling under control will likely reduce any knee arthritis pain as it takes the pressure off the knee joint.
If you are concerned, do get it checked out by your GP. Best wishes, Chloe
